Living History at Stirling Castle

Selected dates until Sunday 15 August 2021

Stirling Castle

Come along to Stirling Castle for a summer full of fun with our Living History programme. From blacksmiths, to archers, to royal heralds, we've got lots to tell you about medieval life at the castle.

You can also see hunters of the skies take flight with our fantastic falconry. Not forgetting our castle defender who will be on hand every Monday and Wednesday from 5 July to 15 August to share their story of defending Stirling Castle during a siege in 1651!

Between the 17 July and 1 August we are delighted to welcome you to our Living History programme as part of CastleFest at Stirling Castle!

Tickets to our sites are free for all children under 16 as part of the Get Into Summer campaign (valid until 17 August). Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult.
