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.

The castle was well worth a visit and the dungeons and castle rooms were particularly interesting. Lots to see and do.

I've been to some great castles in Wales and Suffolk, but really this does not compare. It looks impressive from the outside, but inside there's only a very short section of open battlement, a rather pathetic display of nineteenth century furniture, dusty waxwork statues and bored groups of tourists tolerating pompous actors' notions of nineteenth century history. I'm told events... More

Don't let the title mislead you about my review, I've got nothing against Alton Towers per-se, i think it's a great theme park. However, I was hoping that Warwick Castle would be a bit more "historic" and authentic than it really was. If you've got young children then it's probably an ideal location given the displays and shows etc but... More

Luckily we had two for one tickets or the price would have been outrageous. I think £50 for 2 people is over the top and this did not include the dungeon experience which was another £9 each. very busy though and the castle interior was interesting, made more so by the tussaud type figures in the rooms. This did show... More

From the moment you walk into the castle grounds it is evident that you will have a great day. The grounds are beautiful and the view from the top of the castle is spectacular. On the Sunday I visited with my wife and 3 year old child there was a Bowmen show where a gentleman demonstrated the brutal effectiveness of... More

Spent the whole day here. The castle interiors are well laid out with weaponry, armour, furniture and wax figures illustrating different periods in history. The Dungeon is an extra cost, but great fun, creepy and cheesy in equal measure, but I think it would not be suitable for little children. The food outlets are adequate, but not well sign posted....

Wonderful preserved castle with a lots of information, impressive paintings and historic displays, allow plenty of time, lots to do so do allow plenty time. Mock jousting, sword fighting, birds of prey and lots of other things to keep you occupied. Lovely grassed areas to have a picnic. Only down side, is that it is not disable friendly, i.e.a lot...

We visited here as part of a guided tour so only had a few hours to explore. It was brilliant. Beautiful building. Various expeditions you can do. Various shows take place. I would like to go back for a further visit. Would recommend on what I saw briefly.
