Spectacular Jousting

Linlithgow Palace, 2 July 2016, 3 July 2016

His Grace the King of Scotland invites you to join him and the queen for two days of action and excitement at his royal tournament.

Over the weekend you can meet the retinue and cheer on your favourite as they fight for victory.

They'll battle it out on foot, in archery and in a dazzling display of horsemanship. Who'll be declared champion by the king? Wander through the palace, discover the camps on the Peel and learn more about the weapons and armour in medieval times.

There’s lots for visitors to get involved in too - learn about the fashions of the day from the ladies of the court, meet the palace jester and sign up to join our kids army! There’s lots to keep everyone entertained at our bustling camps and living history displays.
