TEACHERS GUIDELINES

We hope you enjoy your visit to Caldicot Castle. The castle is an historic site and these guidelines have been prepared to make your school visit as enjoyable and safe as possible.

Children should be supervised at all times on site. The co-operation and disciplined behaviour of children on site is necessary for their safety, for the safety of other visitors and for the protection of the ancient monument. We ask that you bring a minimum of 1 adult for every 10 children (adults are admitted free of charge) and would suggest that more adults accompany groups of younger children or those with particular needs. We suggest you bring stout footwear and waterproof / warm clothing depending on your planned activity and when you visit.

Please check the website below for more details and a printable brochure.
