Ford Castle description


Medium (1-150)

Ford Castle is a Medieval castle set in the rolling countryside of Northumberland, with exciting activities hidden within the grounds. We provide group activity holidays for children who will adventure and explore their way into outdoor education as they enjoy activity sessions in a supportive environment with stunning scenery, where history comes to life.

Our unique setting allows children to stay in the castle, play in the grounds and learn outside the classroom. The ropes courses, zip wire, archery and fencing lessons are just a few of the active sessions we provide, and friendly staff will design a stay to your own specifications. Our on site schoolrooms allow classes in modules of science, geography and history, and we use the surrounding countryside, rivers and evolving ecosystems for field study. We even organise group excursions to study places of interest; Alnwick Castle, Lindisfarne, and Edinburgh are popular choices.
