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 visited with our 6 year old son and it was an excellent place to visit. The castle had lots of entertainment but this normally came at an additional cost. The firing of the trebuchet, birds of prey and raising of the portcullis were free and well worth watching. Swordfighting, Merlin exhibition and archery were also available (£3-5 each) and... More

Our family of 5 went on 19th April and overall we enjoyed the castle. The medieval tents were particularly interesting and the place has been well looked after. The negative was paying £6 to park in a field that was a 25 minute walk for the castle, this is unacceptable and the reason I probably wouldn't go back.

Me and my partner booked tickets a week ahead and got 10% discount, which I was really greatful for because the tickets are far from cheap. We had to park a 20min walk away from the castle which still cost £6. When I booked my tickets I also booked for the castle dungeons. I couldnt print the tickets so I... More

Warwick Castle is somewhere I have heard great things about and always wanted to visit. Priced at £30.60 if you pay on the day, (to include the tower and dungeon) I was expecting a fantastic day out. The tower and dungeon tours were disappointing. There were little historic facts about the castle and it was all based on the actors.... More

Been dying to go here for years and finally took the drive down in Feburary. Rather expensive but we had a 2 for 1 ticket which made the cost very reasonable. Paid extra for the dungeons the only annoyance with that was as we had a baby in a pushchair my husband and I had to go in at different... More

Took family with visiting mother in law and sister in law; there were five of us. Managed to get tickets through my work benefits website which were a 40% reduction. It was £70 versus about £110. There is plenty to see and do. We live locally and seldom get the chance to do the tourist thing. The Staterooms were good... More

Me and my family went to vidit Warwick Castle whilst on holiday to Cheltenham and made the huge mistake of not checking it out in the computer first! We got there after getting lost as the road signs were poor, and the one we did find was covered by a tree! We drove through the barrier which tide us into... More

This is my second visit was very disappointed for the ticket price first time round with not much going on so thought would try it over Easter. Granted lots more going on but nothing as good as I was expecting maybe my expectations are high but giving the high gate price they should be pulling out all the stops.

I have to give Warwick Castle an average rating and thats because I have a soft spot for it, due to my love of history and the building itself. I love the privilege of being is such a historic building thinking about what it has seen and who has been there in its 1100 years. I first visited at Easter... More

Having heard good things about the Castle & the experience, I was expecting a Good Friday day-out which didn't materialise. For a start I was surprised that by paying £30.60 per person for the four people in my party (total £123) I had to spend a compulsory £6 to park my car in a field at least a mile from... More
