About

For the past 27 years Herstmonceux Castle has hosted the largest and most spectacular medieval festival in Great Britain.

Unfortunately, due to the current conditions related to the pandemic, England’s Medieval Festival cannot take place this year as it has in the past.

However, to continue the August Bank holiday tradition, included in our normal entry prices; there will be a ‘Medieval Weekend Celebration’ at Herstmonceux Castle, produced in partnership with the organisers of England’s Medieval Festival.
