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

Spending a week up in Warwick for our anniversary, we felt like we couldn't come to Warwick without seeing the Castle.. We booked a VIP pass (Afternoon Tea package) online, £74 for 2 (incl entry + 3course tea). Overall, we were extremely disappointed with the lack of information inside the main building of the castle; it had no form of... More

Just got home from a very full day out at Warwick Castle. We took advantage of the adults go free offer on Rice Crispies and saved almost £50 on the pay on the door price. There's a lot to do. We really enjoyed the Horrible Histories, especially the Slimy Stuarts and the Vile Victorian school teachers. The Birds of Prey... More

I visited Warwick Castle yesterday with my 8 year old daughter & we both had a great day out. Being a single dad with a limited budget I was a bit concerned about how pricey some reviews were saying it was once you are inside the castle. Nonsense, it's only as pricey as you want it to be, there's plenty... More

Warwick Castle is a lovely place to visit for half a day. My kids loved play fighting in the castle grounds and we all enjoyed the sword fighting show (with real swords and axes!) It was also nice to walk up to the tops of the towers for a great view of the surrounding countryside. In the Great Hall there... More

Just returned from an overnight 'glamping' stay at Warwick Castle. Although expensive, we did it as a birthday treat, the service from the staff was excellent. The tent was spacious, but a bit warm, and there was definitely lots of food! Big mention to Jack, who really looked after us and looked after one of the children who was gluten... More

I was on a tour that went to four places, with Warwick Castle being the one I was most unsure about. It was a pleasant surprise. It was interesting to explore the armour and paintings, the decorated rooms and history of the Castle, as well as to see the dungeons and learn about the Kingmaker. It was a good day... More

Having read some reviews comparing it to a tacky theme park was a bit hesitant when visiting. However from the well signposted parking to the very helpful staff at the ticket counters, it became a very enjoyable day out. All the acting staff really threw themselves into their roles. Especially good was the raising of the portcullis which actually took... More

Overall I had a great day at Warwick castle the birds and the Warwick warriors were great to watch. The main reason I am writing this review is to make people aware of the rip off that is the merlin experience at nearly an extra 16 quid for a family of 4 for a poor 15 minute show on top... More

An really fantastic day out to be had at Warwick Castle. I have visited at various times of the year and whatever the weather there is so much to see and experience. Due to the vast grounds, even during peak periods, the castle does not seem over crowded. There are a number of events throughout the day and you can... More
