Castle fun follows story of notorious queen
Framlingham Castle staged a fun trail last week for families to follow the twists and turns in the life of one of its most famous visitors - Bloody Queen Mary.
The half term activity attracted 1,430 visitors over nine days.
Framlingham Castle played a pivotal role in Mary Tudor’s rise to power and it was from there in 1553 that she claimed her place as the rightful successor to the throne of England, having assembled a fighting force of over 13,000 men to back her.
The Catholic queen’s reign was notorious for her persecution of her protestant enemies.
Visitors to the castle could follow a trail of information about Queen Mary and also explore the castle grounds.
