Beeston Castle is one of the most dramatically sited medieval castles in England. It is built onto a rocky crag and incorporates the banks and ditches of an Iron Age hillfort. Use these resources before, during and after your visit to help students get the most out of their learning.

This Teachers’ Kit for Beeston Castle and Woodland Park has been designed for teachers and group leaders to support a free self-led visit to the site.

It includes a variety of materials suited to teaching a wide range of subjects and key stages, with practical information, activities for use on-site and ideas to support follow-up learning.

The colour-coded contents page will help you easily locate what you need and view individual sections. All their activities have clear guidance on the intended use for study, so you can adapt them for your desired learning outcomes.
