Knaresborough is a lovely place for a day out, with its pretty river walks, boats for hire, abundance of places for ice cream and sweet little town. This Saturday (13th August), head down the A59 for Medieval Family Day at Knaresborough Castle. There’ll be battle re-enactments, fighting displays and birds of prey displays as well as the chance to have a go at jousting, sword-fighting, archery and medieval crafts.
Free entry to the remains of Knaresborough Castle. £1 to £3 cost for activities and admission to the Castle and Museum.
