Bolsover Castle Y2

Year 2 had another great visit to Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire, the former home of Sir William Cavendish who decorated it in lavish style back in the 17th Century when he entertained Royal guests. What amazing parties he had!

We all really enjoyed walked around beautifully decorated rooms and looking at the tapestries, paintings and furniture. Outside we were able to walk the battlements, imaging we were on guard duty and scanning the horizon for enemy troops. We even had a chance to dress up as lords and ladies!
We also learned about William Cavendish's love of horses and were able to try on some riding gear before climbing aboard a wooden horse for a perfect photo opportunity. A great day was had by all!
