Warwick Castle

Romance. Murder. Bloodthirsty battles. Most castles have exciting histories – but the here and now can sometimes be more ‘meh’ than ‘yeah’. Not at Warwick Castle. It’s one of Britain’s finest medieval fortresses, plus they really go to town with live shows and attractions and exciting experiences for all ages. Pretty cool, right?

Bring a picnic!

They didn’t have any hot food just pasties and sausage rolls… so better off just taking packed lunch!


Michaela says...

While you're about, explore Warwick town centre!

Worth a walk into Warwick town centre, lovely little town with independent shops, cafes & restaurant.


Laura says...

Not ideal for those who're scared of heights or small spaces.

if you are nervous of heights or claustrophobic you may struggle with it a bit, so just be prepared!

In our own words...

1,100 years of history - without any of the boring bits

Right in the heart of Shakespeare’s England (in over 64 acres of immaculately landscaped grounds), you’ll find Warwick Castle – and more fun activities than you can shake a jousting stick at.

See more than 60 birds swooping and soaring overhead in The Falconer’s Quest (the UK’s largest bird of prey show), and watch as the resident Bowman’s archery skills. The backdrop of medieval turrets and ramparts makes it even more spectacular.

Soak up all the gruesome details at the UK’s first Horrible Histories® Maze then – if you can find your way back out – marvel at the stunt riders and jousters in War of the Roses LIVE. Got a Zog fan in tow? The loveable dragon’s got his own playground with a zipwire and an interactive trail.

There’s more. Chill out for a bit with a stroll around the gaff to take in its lavish interior, or climb the ramparts and take in the view from Guy’s Tower – it's a corker. Be sure to check out the Dungeons too. If you dare, that is.

More about your day out at...

Warwick Castle

Warwick Castle and its grounds are big (you guessed, right?). But you can download a handy map from the official website or download the mobile app – all the info on shows and storytelling times is on there too.

The venue is open from 10am – 5pm most days. But it’s best to double-check beforehand and get there as early as possible if you only have one day to pack it all in. They also try to make the castle as inclusive as possible – there’s an adult changing area near the Conservatory Teahouse you can access with a radar key and a small number of wheelchairs available for loan on the day.

Several of the attractions here use different sensory effects, so talk to a team member if you need more information on this. Assistance dogs are welcome everywhere except tricky areas like the towers, ramparts and dungeons and there are lots of induction loops around the site.

If you’re driving to Warwick Castle, it’s no hassle. Just two miles from junction 15 of the M40, there are car parks around 10-20 minutes’ walk from the main entrance, but visitors with specific needs can be dropped off in a special area that’s much closer.
