    Parking is terrible.
    If you want to have a good time, walk, don’t drive to it. I went to this today, and it took thirty minutes for 1 BUS to get through! We tried to drive in l, but the bus kept blocking us and constantly got hit by the arm for letting people in. When we finally got there, we learned the bus was broken and we had to walk. Not bad, if we didn’t have to go in pouring 40 degree rain!!! When we got to the castle, I didn’t learn anything, and the history was extremely vague, and didn’t teach anything important about the castle. Then when we went to the guys tower, we had to go up a lot of steps. The handrail was so rusted my hands turned orange, please replace them. The dungeon was very small and unimportant. I was very glad when we left because it was raining terribly, and I feel bad for the people who went to the concert that day. Don’t go here!!

    Great day especially Jay with his spellbinding narrative and knowledge of history. In wrong place to experience the falconry. Enough to see and do for two days.

    Avoid before school holidays
    We were unfortunate to visit Warwick Castle in school trip time - at least 15 primary schools were there the day we visited. The State Rooms & Great Hall were the highlight of the visit. The Legend of the Trebuchet and War of the Roses show were very good. But that was it. A lot of the activities are aimed at young children - Zog playground, Princess Tower 7 Horrible Histories Maze. The food choice and availability were terrible - The Conservatory Tea Rooms was fully booked and had very little to eat for everybody else and the Undercroft Cafe had a limited range which when it was sold out by 12:45 wasn't replenished. Also a number of the food outlets were closed. We were told fish & chips were available but they don't appear on the Castle map and staff were very vague about where it was. In the end, we had to go out and get a return pass - The Oken Tea Rooms is a two minute walk away and serves excellent home made sandwiches and cakes.

    What a day
    Just awesome from start to finish, wasnt expecting so much to do. From the history of the Tudor and jousting to the unbelievable bird display, i havent seen a bird display like it For the cost it was a bargain and you litterally spend all day from start to end there. A lot of school trips there so dont fall into the trap of thinking its quieter during school time, but the place gets quieter after 2pm Just dont miss the timed events, very well worth while.

    Full action packed day
    This is our second trip to Warwick Castle as we visited with our children 15 years ago. I was worried it might be as good or that we'd not enjoy it as much as we had all those years ago. I needn't have been worried! The car park is quite a walk but there is a shuttle bus to take you to the entrance. From the moment we entered at 10am to the moment we left 4.00pm we had the best time. There were numerous facilities to use such as toilets, refreshment kiosks and staff to help you. It is a bit pricey but worth every penny as it's an important part of our history and needs our support. The live shows have definitely improved and we watched the trebuchet, war of the roses and the falconery. We had a beautiful weather day so I'm sure that made a difference but even so there so much here to do and see. The tour round the Great Hall by Andrew was very interesting and everything was clearly marked. I'd definitely recommend visiting but you do need to stay the whole day to try and get round everything on offer. Worth every penny! Thank you

    A very much changed place
    Warwick Castle has changed so much in my lifetime: when owned by the Earls of Warwick, frankly the interior was a dull visit. It's been changed out of a great deal of recognition since & is obviously incredibly popular (I arrived minutes after opening & there were already many school parties there). It is aimed at children & families & entertainment more than the old stately home experience. Previously tranquil spots like the Orangery (now a cafe) and the Rose Garden (a "Horrible Histories Maze") are very different & as for the River Island (now with an arena hosting very noisy "re-enactments"): don't expect quiet. There are still peaceful spots further into the grounds, the peacocks remain and so do the magnificent views. The insides are much more interesting now and the Mill & Engine House offer insights previously not available. The staff were patient, courteous & helpful despite what must be stressful roles. It's aimed at visitors quite different from me but I don't resent that: it keeps it open & I could work round the noisy bits. Families & school parties no doubt enjoy the latter. It's pricey (but probably good value) but potential visitors might like to take note of discounts for English Heritage members and an even bigger one for local residents (as I am).

    Family from Canada impressed with visit to Warwick and stay in knights cottages.
    We had an excellent time staying in the knights cottages and touring Warwick castle. Everything was themed and fun and friendly and clean and we were really impressed. The evening entertainment by the duelling nights was a lot of fun and while aimed at younger children, even our teenager, and the adults in our group also thoroughly enjoyed it. Included with our admission ticket to the castle were a number of shows each of which were equally impressive and entertaining. Well worth the visit. Kids are 13,10,7. Accommodations seemed to provide adequately for very young children as well.

    Amazing experience made better by Andrew.
    Went ro Warwick Castle to emerse ourselves in history, explore the castle, and watch the shows. The day was amazing but made even better by one of the tour guides, Andrew. It was myself and my partner, so the kids' activities we couldn't comment on, but we did watch the Falconry show and the War of the Roses, both of which were fantastic. The Falconry show was so informative, telling us everything we needed to know about the birds while incorporating it into a story to submerse you into the tail of Hobby. The birds flew so close and were stunning. The War of the Roses show pitted you against an opposing side to get you involved in the story. The horses, riders, and actors were great, and the performance from everyone was well acted, taking you through the war and peace of the tail. We explored the castles towers, dungeons, and gift shops, but the best part of the day was the talk with Andrew. He truly knows his stuff about the castle, it's history and its former owners. Full of knowledge and the passions he has, shows his dedication to the job and it draws you in. He went above and beyond for us, showing us round, answering all our questions. He has so professional. We could have stayed and listened to him all day, but we ran out of time. (We will be back). He had finished his tour with the group but was more than happy and willing to show the 2 of us round the magnificent rooms and corridors, walking us through hidden passages that are almost invisible and giving us an amazing insight to the lived of the former owners and staff. He really made the day extra special and one to remember. Thank you once again Andrew, it realy was a pleasure, and you made it a memorable experience.

    Great day out
    This was a beautiful castle full of history, activities and beautiful architecture! Lots of activities aimed at kids, and also plenty to see for adults interested in history. Some very good visuals bring history to life! the Kingmaker is really well done and super interesting. the dungeons experience was fantastic, the actors were brilliant, that was the best part for my party. The insults in the court scene were so funny. Amazing experience for the family! It’s worth the money. You can spend all day there. So much to see and many attractions. Something for everybody.

    If you’re interested in history, forget it.
    One star, and grudgingly given at that. To begin with, car parking for the disabled is shambolic, having to compete with a succession of huge tour buses where the facilities for these buses are completely inadequate. There is no one way system, buses have to get to the castle entrance, offload their passengers, and then turn around using a completely unsuitable turning area, then fight their way back down the narrow entrance road, in opposition to the buses coming up the road to unload. Which genius thought up this arrangement ? The disabled parking bays lead off this narrow access road. They are too narrow, and too short for most cars, meaning that you of necessity have to unload a mobility scooter into the path of the buses, ideal when physically challenged, and slow. Once this has been completed, there is no indication at all in which direction the castle entrance lies. Signage is not inadequate, but non existent. Having finally gained access to the castle, you realise that it is NOT a historic site any more, but simply a theme park, designed to separate you from as much of your money as possible. Entrance prices are extortionate, and refreshments - - - at least Dick Turpin had the decency to wear a mask! If you were after discovering the history of the castle from its very early build, by Alfred the Great’s daughter, as a defence against Danish raiders and on via William 1st building as a motte and Bailey (wooden) castle, etc; then forget any of that idea. There’s a great hall with some armour, and a few rooms dedicated to Victorian extravagance and debauchery, but nothing about the true history and use of the castle. You need Wikipedia for this! Notably, the staff on site don’t know when the castle was built, nor by whom! There are archery ranges £6.00 a go, and innumerable stalls attempting to sell you two bits of wood glued together for £15 (a broad sword) etc. Lots of standard fast food stalls (all shut) and similar. Forget the jousting arena, too busy, come back later! Perhaps a fun day out for a family with children 8 years old and older, but as a historical interest day out, you’d be better off studying a book at home, and not paying the considerable entry fee and car park price. The fact that the castle is owned by Merlin Entertainments should explain exactly what it’s about to anyone who cares to think about it for a moment. This fact must be on the web site somewhere, but it is obviously well hidden. Save your money and look elsewhere.

    Beautiful and full of history
    This was a beautiful castle full of history, activities and beautiful architecture! Absolutely fanatastic time! Beware of some of the steep stairs going up to the barbican and other such towers; worth it but will be difficult for those with mobility difficulties

    Fabulous day out! Something for everyone
    This was our third year in a row visiting the castle and it was every bit as good as the first time we went. Yes, it is pricy to get in (plus the parking charge) but can you imagine what it costs to run it? The upkeep of a building like Warwick castle must be phenomenal amounts of money, and without the income we would lose a beautiful, fascinating and important historic part of the country. (I don’t work for them, promise!). My 9 year olds favourite part was the jousting, while mine is always the falconry display. It is absolutely breathtaking. Side note about that - when they tell you to stay seated, do make sure you and your children stay seated. A child behind us nearly got clipped with the claws of a barn owl while dancing around trying to take pictures, which would not have been the fault of the owl. There’s plenty of options when it comes to food, and yes, again it is pricy but every attraction is the same and you wouldt expect anything different. Taking a picnic is a good option, and there are lots of lovely spots to sit and eat. We saw plenty of people towing little trailers along with their food etc in. I can personally recommend iced coffee and doughnuts from the van as a good way to start, and the pulled pork rolls in the undercroft cafe are amazing! Huge credit to all the staff there, everyone is very knowledgeable and the actors that are playing various parts around the grounds are fabulous. Everyone had a smile on their face and this really does make a difference. Particular shout out to the horse riders in the war of the roses show - Wow! A couple of years ago we were also lucky enough to meet William Shakespeare there at a special event, and his memory for the lines from the plays was phenomenal! Would like to sneak him into my sons GCSE exams if he is free. There really is something for everyone, and history buffs will not be disappointed. So much information available about the castle and everything in it, and the time tower is worth a visit to find out about the history of the castle from when it was built. All in all a brilliant day out, and I can guarantee you won’t be leaving until the place is closing and they are gently encouraging everyone to please go home. 10/10.

We booked a trip to visit the castle as it somewhere we have always wanted to take the kids. We got there at 12pm and as we arrived people were leaving, this was immediately a concern as it only opened at 10.30. When we got in headed straight to look around the castle, as much as this was a lonely castle I have been to other that were much more impressive and informative. We didn't see any knights or princesses which was very disappointing and the castle it's self was a short 30 minute walk around. After that we went to see the falcon show, which was by far the best bit of the whole trip and was safely distances for covid-19 purposes. After that my eldest really wanted to try archery, this was at an extra cost of £5pp. I was very shocked at after paying the best part of £100 to get in they would then charge more! After this we walked around for a while thinking we might find something else to do but no, that was it!! Nothing. As we had a 2 day pass we called it a day and the left walking around the castle wall and towers for the next day. We did go back the next day and stayed all of about an hour and half, so could see why people were in fact leaving at that time on the first day. We get chatting the lovely bowman, this was the first person in the whole 2 days we came across and he was great. He told us all about his arrows and how he made them, he took lots of time to talk to the kids and they loved him. He is the one asset the castle has. Over all I was very disappointed and thought there would be much more to do, I wouldn't recommend spending your money here. There are much better places for half the price.

WOW! What can I say? Hmm, nothing good if i'm honest. First impressions? £6 for parking! Shocking! Got to the ticket gate to be greeted by an elderly member of staff with no welcoming manner whatsoever! We then got into the castle itself and asked if there were any history tours taking place throughout the day. The man who we asked didn't know so had to shout over to his two colleagues who were standing like mannequins on the opposite side of the room! They didn't even bother to come over to tell us themselves. All they did was shout back with a time. No enthusiasm or passion about the place!
By the time we had walked around all the rooms, we wanted to sit and relax with a drink and some food. We walked to the main restaurant which was closed, then walked up to the glass house cafe which was, yep you guessed it, closed! We had to ask someone where we could go to get drinks and food as there were no signs around telling us where was open. We had to ask yet another member of staff who said that we had to walk all the way back up to the main entrance to the cafe there! It's crazy that non of the main cafes were open on the main site.
We got to the cafe to find a very glum looking girl on the till. No smile and no friendly greeting. We sat down and ordered our food and ended up having to wait almost an hour. It wasn't even that busy as our visit was during a weekday. I asked where our food was and the same girl who was on the till didn't apologise and said she'd go and find out! She didn't even come back to tell us how long it was going to be! When the food came out, again, there was no apology for the wait time. For the prices we were hoping that we would get something that was worth it! Clearly not! The food was bog standard and not worth the money at all so make sure you bring your own food if you visit.
On a positive, the castle itself is really fabulous and the exhibitions in each room are very cleverly and clearly set out. There's lots of history and things to read and interact with. However, if you're going to visit, do it in the summer when there are more events happening and when the actors are there. They're the ones who really bring the place to life. The staff always seem really glum and unhelpful so it's a thumbs down for the customer service for sure from me.

We’re disappointed that some aspects of your visit did not meet your expectations. The parking fee is for the whole day and goes towards heritage maintenance, we are currently undergoing restoration on the South Front masonry of the castle. In regards to our Food & Beverage units, I am sorry to hear about your frustration with this. Due to the current circumstances we unfortunately don't have the visitor volume to justify having more than one restaurant open, particularly during a weekday so I apologise that you found this frustrating. Your feedback on the service you received in our Coach House restaurant is appreciated and will be reviewed by one of our team members. I sincerely hope that these aspects didn't detract from your enjoyment of the castle itself.

I’m afraid I just don’t understand why this attraction is so expensive. I paid £165 for two adults and three children and so expected to be wowed by the place. It seemed to be a day of queuing to then spend 20 minutes at best looking around the castle/ramparts due to the sheer volume of people shuffling along behind us. The rooms in the castle are understandably roped off to protect their contents but this then leaves a small area to actually see the room. With the amount of people there, it was impossible to stand for any length of time and enjoy it. This was even when it was 40% quieter than usual (as I was told on the phone when I booked it).
The queues at the snack stalls were ridiculous and the service was painfully slow.
40 ministers just to get into the gift shop!
The cafe in the conservatory was massively overpriced. £4.25 for a cheap sausage roll!
£7 for a kids lunch bag with a plain cheese sandwich, apple, water and popcorn bag.
Our three children can find fun in most things...simple walks, National Trust houses etc, but they were bored out of their minds for most of the day. (Allowed 15 mins in order to get them an ice cream before the bird display started but then missed most of it because of slow service at the snack kiosk. It took half an hour to pick 3 ice creams out of a freezer and pay for them.
I honestly feel that you’d be better off paying £25 or so (as a non member) to go into a National Trust house/grounds and then spending the other money on something else that you know would really please your children.
The dungeon was pretty good and although I paid an extra £50 for this it saved the day.
All in all, the day cost around £200. I never mind spending money when I feel that our children or us have had an amazing time but don’t like feeling ripped off. I know that it costs a lot to upkeep such a beautiful place, but it was disproportionately expensive for what it offered. Queuing, huge walk from car park to castle, excessively busy, overpriced food, £6 to get out of car park, quick whistle stop look around castle and that’s about it.
Definitely won’t be returning. Kids won’t ask to go again either thankfully!!

My wife thought it would be nice to visit Warwick Castle while we staying up in Warwick. She looked on the internet and spotted that if you book online you can get a 30% discount on the tickets, Great I thought lets do it. We tried to book but when we clicked on "buy tickets" the price suddenly went up with out any reason. The original price was £18.00 each then it jumped to £20.00 each at the final check out it became £23.00 each, some considerable amount short of the 30% discount that was promised. I decided to go to the online chat feature to ask what the issue was, I had to wait a few minutes for one of their "wizards" to respond. Eventually wizard Harry came on to the chat but I have to say that he was no more a wizard than I was and had no real interest in assist me with the issue simply answering that he didnt know why it did that sometimes. We brought the tickets at £23.00 each feeling less than happy with the deal but my wife really did want to go. We visited the castle the next day and the attraction itself was very good and we enjoyed our time there but my enjoyment was quickly squashed when I then realised that I needed to pay a further £6.00 before my car would be allowed to leave the car park! I dont mind heritage sites making enough money to enable themselves to stay open for all to enjoy but I do suspect someone is making some profit here and if you are going to do that be bloody transparent about it especially if you want people to continue to support the work you are doing!

When booking on the website for the discounted tickets, it has to be at least 4 days in advance otherwise it will give you the 'on the day' price, which is what may have happened. We would like to apologise that you had this experience with the online chat. Unfortunately, they are not resident to Warwick Castle. As you may be aware, the Castle is privately owned and self-funded. Whilst English Heritage and National Trust receive government support and lottery bursaries for maintenance and rely on a team of volunteers as stewards and assistants, all this has to be paid for out of fees at Warwick. At Warwick Castle, revenue generated from admissions and parking charges is re-invested in the maintenance and renovation of the Castle. In the last year alone we have spent approximately £1.5m on masonry repairs to Guy’s Tower and other walls, redecoration of the Royal Weekend Party rooms and fire compartmentalisation. We hope that this didn't detract from your visit too much.

Myself, my partner and our 9 year old child enjoyed a great day out last week at Warwick Castle. We paid for full admission as well as the Dungeon tour.

Booking was very clear and simple on their website, and although the que was huge when we arrived, we bypassed that due to our pre-booked tickets.

We went round the maze on arrival which was great, and then did the castle dungeons. It lasted only 30 minutes (York and London dungeons are an hour). Apart from a rather rude lady at the start, the actors where brilliant.

Following on from this, we looked round the castle itself. It was superb! Very helpful staff and a very impressive and well looked after building.

Now for the part I didn’t enjoy. The price of food and drinks. There is an ok selection of light refreshments available, but the price is astronomical! Far far too expensive. I would highly recommend for people to bring their own picnic in which there is plenty of places to eat it.

Finally, we went to watch the Falcon display. This was absolutely fantastic! One of the best I’ve seen (second to the one in Knutsford).

A good day had by all. Spoilt by ridiculous beverage prices.

I’ve stayed away from big attractions since COVID, but my daughter had done a project on castles at school and i wanted to Reward her with a day out.

Wow! Just wow!

Our day out was fantastic.
The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful, making us feel safe and offered really useful guidance as we went around.
The shows were great - but the haunted features (Spooked and the Hollows) were so good. I wished we could have come at night when it would all have been lit up.

The Falconers Quest was a stunning show. A great idea that allowed for everyone to enjoy something special whilst keeping a distance. I can’t express how awesome this show was - and that finale!!!! Spectacular!!

Warwick Castle seems to have really focussed on making you feel safe whilst still giving amazing value for money.

I’ve visited a few times in the last 5 years but this was the most memorable.

Amazing work!!

A wonderful place to spend the afternoon or a day when the sun is out. Some incredible views.
Inside the castle you can really appreciate the history and what has come before. From suits of armour is the great hall to tapestries on the walls in the bedrooms.
The added points of bird shows and dungeons add more to the experience.
Do be aware that parking is a flat rate of £6 should you be there an hour or all day.
Temperatures are being checked upon entry and pre booking is a requirement for entry.
Makes a great day out for the family.

I have been looking forward to this experience for many years and I wish it lived up to my expectations. My first disappointment came when we had to pay for parking our car at a cost of £6, my other disappointed came from the over all quality and impression of the interior of the castle, we have visited many castles throughout Britain and have never came away thinking where is our admission fee going. The areas for eating were limited especially with the weather being wet and windy. However the dungeon visit was very good, highly recommend this but small children be aware it could possibly be scary for them.

We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t feel as if you received value for money during your visit to Warwick Castle. We aim to provide a whole day of historic entertainment for people of all ages: though our history team tours where you can learn about the history of the castle, over 300 information boards, interactive displays such as the Kingmaker and the Horrible Histories Maze where children can learn about different aspects of history as they make their way through the maze and much more. Our actors work hard to make the Dungeon experience as believable and enjoyable as possible it is great to hear that you enjoyed it. We appreciate your feedback on you trip and we hope that this didn't detract from your visit too much.

We are a young couple 23-26 and decided to visit Warwick castle, we were shocked at the £6 parking fee on top of the £22 entry?! Surely parking should be included. To start with we were really disappointed, the horrible histories maze was okay (know it’s more for kids) but could’ve done with more interesting props or pictures in it, the facts however were really interesting! The castle grounds had a fair bit of rubbish scattered around which was sad to see and the grass was all mud from what looks like events that occurred earlier in the year (due to there being less on in winter feel tickets should be cheaper as there’s less of an experience looks like there normally is lots more for children to do). The lower section of the castle was interesting but smelt like urine throughout. We were really really impressed by the great hall and surrounding rooms, beautifully decorated and really interesting information. The food was disappointing. We went to the conservatory as it was raining there was no covered outdoor seating so everyone was hoping for a table inside however it was table service only and the food again was really overpriced with a limited selection. The sandwiches were as standard as a Tesco meal deal yet cost £7 for a sandwich and crisps. Can get cheaper at Costa and it’s much nicer food, the staff were rude and we could hear them muttering to each other about other visitors. However the rest of the castle the staff were all friendly and helpful. If there was some sheltered space outside for families especially with children for picnics that would help. We feel the whole place has been over commercialised a bit taking away the simplicity and beauty of the castle however we would still recommend it to others as a good day out as you were there for a good few hours. Just book tickets in advance as cheaper, and take your own food and drinks!

Thank you florenceh687 for your review. We are sad to hear that some aspects of your visit did not meet your expectations. We expect all staff to deliver high levels of customer service at all times, and are disappointed that this was not your experience when visiting us. We are sorry you found the food disappointing.

As we have a limited space on site, it is a challenge to tackle rainy days, but we appreciate your understanding with this. Thankyou for your review.

Warwick Castle is a fantastic place steeped in history, but unfortunately there were a few things of concern. In addition to the cost of the tickets, car parking needs to be paid for at £6 per car, and it’s quite a walk from the car park to the entrance to the castle.

Unfortunately, there are no precautions in place to ensure social distancing at all. We had to queue to get in which isn’t a problem, but it was very busy and difficult to keep distancing from one another due to the barriers - perhaps markings on the floor would encourage visitors to take more care? The same goes for the horrible histories maze. We were looking forward to this, but there are no limitations on how many people can enter the maze at once, meaning we had to queue most of the way round and avoid people coming round. So we gave up and came out again which was disappointing. Again, despite being outside, this is a confined space with no social distancing measures in place. I feel a simple solution would be to allocate time slots to parties to limit how many people enter the maze at once.

The jousting performance was good, however, again there were many crowds of people under the canopies - as you can see from the photo attached, it, like many other parts of the venue, are very much a ‘free for all’.

The falconry display is excellent. Upon arrival we had decided that we weren’t bothered either way if we saw it, but we were really pleased we did, and would highly recommend it.

The dungeons didn’t appear to be open unfortunately, so can’t comment on that and there are a few ‘have a go’ stations dotted around which require an additional fee.

All in all, in ‘normal’ times, it would have been an enjoyable day out, but the lack of Covid control dput a dampener on the day.
