Tintagel Castle

Seven English Heritage sites across the country will be offering extended group benefits when the 2017 season begins in April next year.

Tintagel Castle and Pendennis Castle in Cornwall, Portland Castle in Dorset, Goodrich Castle in Herefordshire, Beeston Castle and Woodland Park in Cheshire, Kenilworth Castle and Elizabethan Garden in Warwickshire, and Stokesay Castle in Shropshire will all offer groups of eleven or more a 10 per cent discount voucher for food and drink in the onsite eatery on the day of the visit, either to be used independently or as part of a group catering booking.

New additional benefits for 2017 will also include a £10 complimentary lunch voucher for group travel organisers and coach drivers.

These new perks will be added to the existing group benefits at English Heritage sites, which include 15 per cent discount on admission for groups of 11 or more and free admission for group travel organisers and coach drivers.

What to look out for

Tintagel Castle, perched on Cornwall’s dramatic Atlantic coastline, boasts a recently opened exhibition that takes groups on a journey through the history of the castle, which has strong links to King Arthur.

Pendennis Castle offers 360 degree views out to sea and an insight into almost 500 years of history stretching from Tudor time to the World War Two, including with an exhibition looking at the impact of World War One on the castle.

Meanwhile at Kenilworth Castle, groups can discover the love story between Queen Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley and enjoy the recreated Elizabethan Garden.

Or, at Goodrich Castle, overlooking the River Wye, parties can explore what is said to be one of the most complete sets of Medieval domestic buildings surviving in any English castle.
