Throughout the event, the West Norfolk public were able to meet and chat to characters while going about their daily lives, as well as see the weapons, living accommodation and the outfits they wear.

In its time Rising has served as a hunting lodge, royal residence, and, for a brief time in the 18th century, even housed a mental patient.

The most famous period in its history was when it came to the mother of Edward III, Queen Isabella, following her part in the murder of her husband Edward II.
