To remind them of their visit, each one is given a castle badge and a card to encourage them to make a return visit and bring their families along. Since 1974 Skipton Castle has given a badge to every visitor under the age of 18. See the collection on our website http://www.skiptoncastle.co.uk/buttons.asp
or ask the children to design their own badge at school http://www.skiptoncastle.co.uk/family.asp?page=5
