Happy Birthday To You!

Our birthday party packages are aimed at children aged 5-11.

Work with a member of our team to choose the best themed party for your child. Packages include a bespoke tour, getting messy with some Castle arts and crafts and a private space for you to host games and pass out the birthday cake.

All you’ll need to do is bring your own food and drink and get ready for heaps of Castle kids fun!

Party Review

“We had a 6th birthday party at the Castle this weekend. It was exceptional. Super well planned, lovely, engaging staff (who managed to keep 10 small people thoroughly engrossed), and a great space for party food and games after! Really first class experience. Cannot recommend the party package highly enough.”
