More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

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’

SCHOOLS

Kenilworth Castle has been a major military stronghold, a royal palace, and an inspiration to writers and artists. It's the perfect destination to bring learning outside of the classroom and cover a wide range of curriculum subjects.
