Tiffauges is a castle with a rich and interesting history, which is brought to life with animations throughout the day from a great team. From demonstrations of trebuchets and siege towers and cranes to a fantastic show of jousting and games and swordplay.
We visited the Chateau with young children and found it a delightful and welcoming place.
It’s very affordable - certainly when compared to Puy de Fou! But the jousting and knights were equally fantastic.
There is plenty to see and do - in a manageable...More

Went with young family - boys aged 5, 3, 1. Enjoyed exploring the place, however the stand out really was the show which was different level. It was peeing it down with rain but the performers still went guns blazing and put on a great...More
Really enjoyed visiting here, as we were staying locally, and thorough exceeded expectations, as we ended up staying 4+hours there seeing the various shows.
The spectacles in the grandstand may not have been as lavish as Puy de Fou, though were more personal, and 'close'......More
Those guys back home could learn a few things from here!

If I remember from our visit, to enter the chateau should not be a problem. The actual grounds are suitable for visitors with limited mobility. The outdoor performance arena is also suitable (sitting first row) but to visit certain part of the castle or watch the video room, may not be possible as there are stairs up and down and often very tight space.
Overall it is NOT 100% accessible for wheelchairs. Hope this helps.
