We went back inside the castle and went into the weapons room. The Duke of Norfolk has collected lots of different weapons and there was even the helmet and sword of a knight called the Giant of Arundel, he was 7ft tall! Next we headed into the Great Hall and saw lots of Medieval artifacts.
We then tried on lots of different Medieval outfits, such as Jesters, Queens, Kings, Knights, and even held real swords, spears, crossbows and bow and arrows.
In the afternoon we walked across the drawbridge and saw the portcullis. We learnt about how the attackers would be trapped between two potcullises and then the soldiers would fire arrows and throw things at them! We then saw the toilet and found the dungeon. It has a special name, 'Oubliette' which means to forget and it is a deep dark hole that prisoners would be thrown into and left.
Lastly we visited the gardens and saw all the beautiful flowers. There was even a floating crown!
We had a fantastic day and learnt a lot about the castle.
