Roarsome Fun at Bolingbroke Castle

The great dragon of Old Bolingbroke has returned to lay her glittering eggs. Get fired up for Heritage Lincolnshire’s Family Activity Day and Dragon-Egg Hunt at Bolingbroke Castle on 2nd June 2021 for some half-term fun. Visit the castle between 10.30am and 4pm and explore the ruin’s nooks, crannies and hidey-holes to seek out the golden bounty before they hatch.


Don’t forget to bring your walking shoes too as Geoffrey Newmarch will also be leading a gentle stroll around the area for families, leaving from the castle at 12.30pm and returning around 2pm.


If a walk isn’t for you then you can instead learn about this amazing ruin with short history talks at 11.30am, 1pm and 3.30pm.


Families are encouraged to come in their best medieval costumes and join in the Fancy Dress Competition at 3pm for the chance to win a special prize for the best ‘off the scale’ outfit.


Whether it is only a flying visit or for the whole afternoon, join us for what is sure to be an enchanted day for knights, princesses and the whole family.


The Dragon-Egg Hunt is priced at £2 per trail and includes a prize on completion.
