We had an amazing day at Kryal Castle. We have often found that locations where under a particular age are free that the attraction isn’t really as suitable for a child that young- but at Kryal Castle, that wasn’t the case at all. Despite the boys being 1.5 and 2.5 there was still loads for them to enjoy, whilst still being entertaining for the adults. The shows are quite interactive, you can watch a joust and weapons display at various times throughout the day, there was face painting for a gold coin, there’s a large playground and a bakery/café if you’re there for lunch and a few animals to say hi to. The boys were a little young to enjoy the pantomime, but the older kids seem to enjoy it. They run special programs for the school holidays, so it’s worth looking at the itinerary and seeing what the program looks like before you head over there so you can plan your day.
