Knight School

Knight School! Who Said Chivalry is Dead?

This Half Term the Tower of London is recruiting valiant children to Knight School where they will learn to protect our great Medieval fortress.

Starting as Pages, girls and boys will be put through their paces, learning the art of dancing and entertaining lords and ladies until they reach the rank of Squire.

Once a Squire, their hand will be tested in the martial skills of combat. Will they be brave enough to ride into battle? Do they have what it takes to protect the realm? Only once they have proved their mettle will they be dubbed Knights of the Tower!

The Knights of Knight School will then have the chance to defend England’s greatest medieval fortress as enemies attack from all sides!

Don’t worry, they should come out unscathed and will get a chance to handle some medieval fashions and replica armour and follow an exciting Knights of the Tower trail card guide.

But Knight School isn’t all the glory of the battle, their artisanal skills will be tested too as children decorate their own medieval helmets and design your family coat of arms.
