Hello! We will be based in Oakham for a week at the end of June. I have several day trips planned and just read about Warwick Castle as another day trip idea.
On the castle website I've read about the advance ticket cost savings, food offerings, and a few scheduled shows on the day we'd probably visit. My question is: are there other shows that are part of the normal daily schedule: like jousting, bird of prey show, comedy shows, dance/singing performances, etc.?
We have Renaissance Festivals in the USA that we've been to and enjoy. Warwick Castle sounds somewhat similar, but based in an actual medieval castle vs. a local park setting. Would this be an accurate description? Are there plenty of shows offered during the day that you go watch?
One hestitation I have with the pre-booking is: the weather. What if it happens to be a dreary wet day? Is Warwick Castle still a good place to visit then?
Thanks so much!
