In the courtyard, there will be a show on every three hours, and there will be actors re-enacting some of the famous legends such as the Excalibur being drawn from the stone, the battle of Camlann, the death of king Arthur. visitors will be allowed to walk on the castle grounds and go for walks where there will be actors walking around as knights, servants, villagers, druids or even king Arthur and they’ll talk to visitors about who they are and what they do on a daily basis. there is also an opportunity to have a maximum of 30 people camping overnight in the forest and they will have a tour guide with them to tell...
