Legendary Jousting at Belsay Hall

About

English Heritage summer activities just got feisty with a Legendary Joust. Families looking for things to do in the North East this summer will love a visit to Belsay Hall, Gardens and Castle in July. Jousting goes back to its roots in this no-holds-barred tournament of strength, skill and horsemanship. Charging at each other at full speed with only chain mail for protection, each knight will attempt to knock their opponent from their horse. It’s every man for himself in this thrillingly authentic 13th-century tournament, inspired by the brutal early days of jousting. 

The encampment at Belsay Hall will be alive with the sights, sounds and smells of medieval life. Listen to merry music and learn about cookery and crafts from centuries ago. You can even meet the knights as they prepare for battle. This will be a brilliant day out with the kids during the summer holidays and if you book your tickets before 19th July, you'll receive 10% discount. 

Guide Prices
