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. « less

We bought or tickets online which meant we got a discount on our family ticket, including the optional extras; the Merlin Tower and the Dungeon. Somewhat disappointed that this didn't include parking, which was an additional £6 (or £10 if you pay for premium parking). The online tickets meant we were able to fast-track into the site though. The Merlin... More

Over An hour to get in and £6 just to park your car. The castle is now really just a backdrop for other shenanigans such as horrible histories not as it used to be. These people sure know how to ruin an attraction

We went here on 21st August and loved everything about it. We were mixed ages 70's, 40's and a 9 year old girl and all agreed it was fab. My little girl loves Horrible Histories and what a great idea to combine it at the Castle to allow kids to learn and adults too! We started at Gorgeous Georgians and... More

This castle is wonderful - beautiful, charming and every part is dramatic. Shame this is owned by Madam Tussaud's, they have ruined this castle, made it far to dramatized and added extra things to it that it doesn't need. Food is far too expensive, a bottle of water was £2! Its a bit pricey to get in then they expect... More

Today we went to Warwick Castle as a party of seven. 1 OAP, 1 wheelchair user (adult) 3 adults (although they are only 15) and 2 small children (5 and 6 years old). Having trekked the 20 minute walk from the overflow car park which was hard work when pushing a wheelchair across muddy grass to get to the paths... More

I remember going to Warwick Castle as a boy when it was an historic attraction - and a wonderful experience it was, fuelling as it did my burgeoning interest in history. Now Merlin Entertainments had laid waste to that heritage and Warwick Castle is now little more than a backdrop to a second rate theme park. Music was playing all... More

Had a great day out despite rain for half the day. The dungeon was particularly entertaining and the actors brilliant, but my favourite was the eagle and bird show especially Ernie the owl. Even the 20 minute walk from the carpark didn't dampen my enthusiasm

Warwick Castle classical music concert. The concert was great, well worth the time and effort, and the admission price, but the young gate attendants were officious, ageist, and unsympathetic to older people with slight mobility problems We travelled from Blackpool to attend the classical music concert on 12th July as we have done for many years. At the time I... More

What a shame that this once great castle and a big part of this country’s history. Is now nothing more than a theme park, that is doing nothing much to show its visitors the true meaning of the history of the castle and its former inhabitants. The only good thing I can say about our resent visit was the flight... More
