Number 12 on the Castle of Light trail

Meet Rex in the Great Hall

Our very own Castle of Light mascot Rex Rampant is right here in the flesh… or should that be… fur.

He’s quite a lot less chatty in person so don’t expect him to say much but he’s very friendly.

Even Rex needs an occasional break and there may be a queue so if there’s a wait please enjoy the spectacular (and warm) interior of the Great Hall. Dating from 1512 it was built by James IV as a place for feasting, celebration and the most important of meetings. Today it contains a display of weapons and armour as well as the ceremonial keys for the Castle itself.

TIMES: 5pm to 5.45pm, 6pm to 6.45pm and 7pm to 7.45pm
