You’ll begin your training as a page. Impress your Lord or Lady with good manners as you serve at the dinner table! You’ll also get to entertain them with your funniest joke or dazzle with your dance moves!
Work your way up to a squire – learn to fight, proving that you are fit enough to become a knight of England! Do you have what it takes to become a master of the sword?
Eventually you are worthy to become a knight and to join the garrison to Defend the Tower! You’ll get to try on medieval fashions and handle replica armour and other real medieval objects.
Pick up a knight’s craft pack and be inspired by the coats of arms and armour around the Tower to create your own helmet or shield.
Knight School activities are recommended for children aged 5-11 and their families.
