Imagine a totally electrifying day out at Britain’s ultimate castle. Where you can immerse yourself in a thousand years of jaw-dropping history – come rain or shine.Where ancient myths and spell-binding tales set your imagination alight, and your hair on end. Where princesses are pampered and maidens are wooed, as winners become true heroes and losers are confined to dark, dank dungeons to be forgotten for eternity. It could only be Warwick Castle.

Just happened to be in the area with my husband and had visited most castles, but decided this was the best so far. It has all elements of medieval and stately home with the added attraction of the Dungeon. The Dungeon was great, but could have been a lot scarier, but since it is targeted at children as well from... More

On a recent visit to Warwick Castle with friends ( the oldies club) we were pleased to find the castle grounds well kept and clean from litter, we did notice a hard working litter picker who was about our age, clearing up after some school children who just left a trail of rubbish, shame on the teachers for not keeping...

We arrived at the castle car park to a huge shock.... £6.00 to park your vehicle... Along with £20 per person entry PLUS an extra £9 per person to go in the dungeon 😁 This is definitely not a cheap day out and sadly brings this type of attraction out of reach cost wise for many people. Luckily my boyfriend... More

Warwick Castle is a great day out, and I am happy to support Britains amazing historic heritage. I found the guided tour to be informative, and you come away knowing about the castles former occupants and their extravagant living. Could work out expensive if you're taking the family - but its an education, and on a nice day ... you... More

I visited Warwick Castle about one week ago. It was a very nice experience. You can learn the history behind it. There are many rooms each one with its own history. An amazing dinner room, and it is full of old devices as a medieval armors, weapons, swords, etc. It is easily a full-day visit. If you love to take... More

It was a really superb trip, to be here inside the castle and to learn about its charming history. Originally I had planned to walk around Warwick town but I ended up savouring every moment of the day in the fantastic castle. The best thing about this castle is that it has lots of activities which help you fully understand... More

I first visited Warwick Castle in 1984, on a trip with my brother and grandmother, and it was one of my favorite places on my 8-day tour of the English countryside. In 1993, I took my parents to England for a 10-day driving tour, and I took them to Warwick because I wanted them to see it as well. Again,... More

This was a pleasant surprise. We expected a theme park and got a lovely balance between fun and history. We managed to spend a few hours here between watching one of the shows and the many displays inside the castle. Be warned that the battlement walk is as tiring as it warns!

Rarely would we spend all day in one place but this is an exception. We did get "stamped" so we could go in to the town centre to eat but eagerly returned. The castle rooms were well presented and explained, the two tours had excellent guides and the bird of prey flight good fun to watch. In fact we did... More

We took the family for the day out in mid February. On the way I did a bit of research on the history and was amazed that it is one of the oldest castles in Europe, and interested in the pivotal role it played in English history for almost 1000 years. I'm glad I did read up on it because... More
