Celts and Romans go head-to-head this May half term holiday, and we’ve got lots of fantastic interactive activities for families.

The fun activities, which run from 11am to 3pm, Monday 30 May to Friday 3 June, include:

Creating your own simplified Celtic Roundhouse: Find out about the buildings the Celts and Romans lived in with our interactive models and then have a go at making your own!

Learn how to play Celtic and Roman board games

Test your mettle with our simplified Tabletop Wargame. Using models of the Palace, and Celtic and Roman warriors, one person plays as the Roman defender and the other plays as the Celtic attacker.

On top of this, every day from Monday 30 May to Sunday 5 June, families can take part in a Celts vs Romans trail around the Palace.

All activities are included in general admission fees.
