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 only had a couple of hours, but could have happily stayed two or three hours longer as there was jousting, battles, and the firing of mediaeval weapons that we had to miss, sadly, as we couldnt spare more time.

It's our 2nd visit to Horrid Histories. It was enjoyable last year, but this year is better. An absolute must for all school age children. Little extra gems added this year which have improved it from last year. We shall certainly be visiting again before school starts. The actors were so much fun; along with the regular warwick knight trainers,... More

A little bit overly commercial (they don't get grants to keep up the castle and grounds), but, worth the visit, for the unusual attractions (trebuchet, birds and ornate gardens).

Seen a few reviews moaning that it was expensive and dumbed down but i thought it was great. They've made it much more interesting for kids with lots of free shows and activities such as the trebuchet show and bird of prey display. Yes, you have to pay for things like the dungeno (£9) and of course food but you... More

Warwick castle is a good day out and we did enjoy ourselves, especially the birds of prey, What I did object to was the price £24 on the gate, if you book in advance it's £18 which is a more reasonable price for what is there, then its another £9 to visit the dungeon and £6 to park your car...

An enjoyable day all round but very commercial. More like a purpose built tourist attraction than a Historic castle. The jousting is entertaining, we sat and had our picnic on the hill opposite the show, which was pleasant. Was also pleased to see the birds of prey too.

Arrived by 10 am so didn't have such a walk from the car to to entry point.......no queues. We managed a quick look round the ground level rooms and booked the dungeon event before rising of the portcullis. The guy wasn't allowed a microphone because of moaning residents and if little kids weren't taken to this important information then you'd... More

Castle is nicely restored; however it has a very Disneyland feel to it. Lots of touristy- type games and attractions for kids. Great if you have children, not so great if you are a history buff. Wax statues were a bit creepy and couldn't see much of the interior due to all the kids running around. Not really worth the... More

Warwick Castle is an interesting experience and it depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for something very historical and regal, probably not your cup of tea, but it is enjoyable. First off, it's expensive, so get the most for your money and plan to stay there for the day. It is crowded, so get there... More
