Owner description: 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.

After a disastrous visit in the summer, we gave Warwick castle another chance and it couldn't have been more different. We had a wonderful day, the birds of prey were simply amazing and the bowman had us in fits of giggles. The castle and grounds are spectacular and our little boy thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful in... More

We enjoy visiting castles and this one is a good one but be sure to take the dungeon tour which is a participateive one. There are actors in the different parts of the dungeon that give you the feel of what being incarcerated there would be like. The main portion of the castle is an enjoyable experience also. You can... More

Very good day out and worth the cost. Disappointed with the Dungeon which, I must confess, I was wary about. In the end not at scary and I had trouble not laughing while I was being 'tortured'. Some of the castle was closed as it was winter and we particularly felt the food offerings were a bit limited because of... More

Rather a long walk from the car park . We come from Pembrokeshire and our local Pembroke Castle looks just as impressive. We had a guided tour of the state rooms by Stuart which was very informative, the rooms were very impressive. We went up the towers but were disappointed we couldn't go to the top of the tallest tower.... More

We used to bring our kids here many years ago and we were quite looking forward to going again as we had free tickets included with a nearby hotel stay. The castle still looks very impressive and grand. Rather surprised at the cost of car parking, £6. Had a walk around and went to see the lovely birds of prey... More

Very good, lots to see and do. The kids there seemed to like it there. Wear comfortable shoes as there's lots of walking involved.

We went to the castle as it is included on the Merlin passes. We were impressed with the Dungeon attraction it was very scary! walking around the grounds you escape into a little bit of history imagining what it was like back when the castle was used. The great hall was impressive too

We visited with the family and used a discount card. There was a huge amount going on but the best bit was being announced into the Hall the kids loved it. Peacocks gave a good show too. Worth bringing a bite to eat and getting down by the river to enjoy it.

We visited for about 3 hours and had lots of fun. The castle is beautiful and offers lots of activities for young and old. There is a playground, archery, a trebuchet, a princess experience and more. We also toured the Dungeon which is highly entertaining and causes some delighted screams of fright. The castle also has lovely grounds, beautifully set... More

We had a good day out here, though I would say it is no good for children out of season as there is not much for them to do. We thought that the Archery was a bit expensive when you first go in £5 for 12 arrows. The playground was shut. The Dungeon experience was good though to pay another... More
