English Heritage is to be applauded for the development of the Discovery Visits, which interpret the story of the site and give a sense of time and place to visiting schools.
Discovery Visit leaders say:
‘It's feelings and experiences that are important. Through them, the true story of a place can be brought alive’
‘Re-enactment is a brilliant way to teach. It engages children who then become interested and start listening to what you say’
Plan your school trip to Farleigh Hungerford Castle, a fortified mansion originally home to the Hungerford family. Explore the castle ruins, the chapel and the burial vault and look around the Priest's House to learn about the history of the site and the people who lived there.
Support your teaching in a fun and engaging way, with a visit to Farleigh Hungerford Castle.
