Building castles in the air usually involves dreamy structures, whimsically constructed defences, and cannons firing rounds of cloud torpedoes. Imagine majestic occasions with today’s Groupon: £5.50 for family entry and an audio tour at Caldicot Castle. Founded by the Normans in the middle ages, this stronghold of medieval history is now certified as a Grade I listed building. The castle’s battlements supply panoramic views of the surrounding 55 acre Country Park, with the quietly murmuring River Nedern creating backdrop for picnics and barbeques. Entertaining children with kingly activities and accommodating grand weddings, the grounds keep cobwebs at bay by hosting a range of private events. Entering the majestic grounds on any day of the week, families consisting of two adults and up to three children can enjoy a day at Caldicot Castle and its surrounding country park. The sweeping history of the fortress can be explored with audio walking tours, while the kids can draw their own armour and forge miniature castles to take home in the activity centre. After playing draughts on the giant chessboard, and exploring the woodlands and pond-dipping station, guests can start to wind home dreaming of ancient castles.
