Witley Court & Gardens, renowned for its grandiose parties and royal entertainment during its Victorian heyday, will feature a range of era-themed activities.

Sites in nearby counties will also be hosting activity days for children.

At Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire, the Elizabethan era will be brought to life as children learn about life during Queen Elizabeth I's reign.

Goodrich Castle in Herefordshire will offer a hands-on experience for budding young knights, introducing them to medieval history.

Ella Harrison, events manager at English Heritage, said: "Whether you’re in Herefordshire, Warwickshire or Worcestershire, you’ll be spoiled for a fantastic day out at our historic properties.

"Our Kids Rule! activities aim to bring our castles and stately homes to life for youngsters on their school holiday break.

"We can’t wait to welcome families to our sites to join in the fun soon."

All three sites offer opportunities for the whole family to explore, from lofty castle keeps and dramatic ruins to thriving spring gardens and cosy tearooms.

The activities will run from 10am to 5pm throughout the week.

Admission to Witley Court starts from £11 for adults and £6.50 for children.

Family passes are also available (one or two adults with up to three children) for £17.50 or £28.50.
