An incredible view to end a fabulous and busy day. Joined in the 40th birthday celebrations of the gorgeous @vintagelass, watched England win their quarter final while playing with two nieces, had fish & chips sitting in the sun at Knaresborough Castle, and then attended a fantastic concert of songs from the musicals at St John's Church. Think I'm ready for bed now! #knaresboroughcastle#knaresboroughviaduct#sunset
You can make a pomander in our historical craft activities during Sunday’s Civil War Day event at the castle.
From the middle ages right up to the 1700s, pomanders were carried, held to the nose, suspended on chains or girdles or hung in rooms to ward off bad smells, freshen clothes and make the wearer smell nice. It was also believed that these sweet smelling herbs and spices could ward off infectious diseases and protect the wearer from illness. #knaresborough#knaresboroughcastle#familycrafts#craftsforchildren#historicalcrafts

Knaresborough Castle will reverberate to the sounds of a time when the country was torn apart by civil war this Sunday 8 July when a regiment of the re-enactment society The Sealed Knot rolls into town.
The Sir Thomas Glemham’s Regiment of Foote will be the main attraction at the Civil War Day, giving visitors an opportunity to find out what life was like in the 17th Century when England was torn apart by Civil War and Englishman fought against Englishman.
Knaresborough Castle played an important role in the English Civil War, when Sir Henry Slingsby’s Royalist forces were besieged by the Parliamentary army. This significant part of the castle’s history will be brought to life on Saturday when the Sealed Knot Society re-enactors present a spectacular experience, taking the castle back to a time when the sounds of cannon, musket and pike drills filled the Knaresborough air. #knaresborough#knaresboroughcastle#englishcivilwar@thesealedknot
