Yesterday we visited a childhood haunt of my Knight in Shining Armour – Tamworth Castle. A Norman motte and bailey castle which has the second largest motte in England. Historically Tamworth was the capital of the Kingdom of Mercia. We spent an enjoyable afternoon enjoying the history, the exhibitions and the hands on activities. Then we explored the gardens which were a hive of activities including; an adventure playground, crazy golf, flat green bowling, outdoor gym, the planet walk, skate park and even a travelling fair. Lots to do for everyone, it was a great day out.
