Details

Join us for our annual Dragon Egg Hunt at Pontefract Castle.

Take a walk on the mythical side and explore the Castle's ancient, atmospheric ruins as you search out the fabled dragon eggs.

But that’s not all – there’s also a whole clutch of amazing activities for little ones (and their grownups!) to enjoy, including mysterious trails to follow, lively craft activities to make and keep, and delicious treats to eat (hunting dragon eggs is hungry work, you know!).

But beware – dragons aren’t just for fairy tales, so keep your eyes open, and you might just glimpse one…
