Join Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and the Royal Foot Soldiers in a procession to the Jousting arena at Hever Castle.

The Knights of Royal England’s tournaments provide the very best in jousting and medieval entertainment.

Approximately 1¼ hours of spectacular action, stunts, falls, fights and galloping horses. This includes a a warm up, introductions, fanfares, professional commentary, and music throughout the show.

Battling it out in the saddle and on foot, the knights compete for points to find this season’s ultimate champion.

Surrounded by 150 acres of beautiful ground and award-winning gardens, historic Hever Castle provides a picturesque setting for a fantastic day of jousting.

Bring a blanket to watch the tournament from the two acre field or watch the joust in style from the medieval spectator stands (£2 per seat). Then choose which knights you support and cheer them to glory.

Test the skills you have seen on family and friends by buying mock shields, swords and armoury and finish your day off with an refreshing ice cream or cold drink.

Families can also enjoy the 150 acre stunning gardens at Hever Castle, the play areas, including the Tudor Towers adventure playground, the popular Water Maze and the historic Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.
