Children can join Oliver Cromwell’s army and discover what it took to be a soldier of the English Civil War.

Test your agility in the children’s battle and learn to use a pike in the soldiers’ drill. Children can also dress up as a Cavalier in the Discovery Centre and learn about the castle’s Civil War history.

Lucy Hutchings, English Heritage events manager says, “Time Travellers Go…events at Bolsover Castle are all about having a go and having fun. The events are run by colourful historic characters who bring history to life for children.”
