Spectators will be treated to thrilling displays of action, stunts, falls and fights as the brave knights compete for points to find the season’s champion knight. Points are awarded in competitions including riding against the quintain, riding to spear enemy heads from the ground and lancing the smallest of rings, all followed by foot combat with weapons of their choice.
The highlight of the competition is the duel on horseback between two knights riding against each other on their beautiful Spanish horses at full tilt armed only with a 4-metre lance and a shield. Maximum points are scored for unseating their opponent in this dramatic finale.
Garden only visit - Entry tickets to the castle can be purchased on arrival (dependent on space being available).
