Spectacular Jousting

Linlithgow Palace, 4 July 2015, 5 July 2015

Experience an afternoon of thrills and spills as Linlithgow Palace and Peel hosts its annual jousting tournament.

Hear the thunder of hooves and the crack of lances splintering as our daring knights battle it out in the arena in a show of skill and horsemanship.

Enjoy a full programme of activities with shows and presentations throughout the afternoon. Drop in to the Palace, wander through the bustling camps on the Peel and watch the fascinating foot combat and living history displays.
