We visited Warwick Castle for the weekend (and stayed at the Knight's Village, review submitted separately!) and had a great day.

First off, I need to say that on the Saturday, the rain stayed away and so we were able to enjoy most of it. Day 2 was spoilt a bit by rain but the kids still managed to enjoy what they could.

We have kids who were 4 and 5.5 at the time of the visit and they were kept distracted/entertained enough throughout the day, so that says something for the appeal of the place!

Having enjoyed a walk around the outside of the castle, interacting with the resident peacocks etc, we ventured into the inner section, across the small bridge and under the portcullises and the ramparts. I've read that people don't like the fact that there are food vendors dotted around the site - personally I didn't find them too intrusive (i.e. they weren't brightly coloured and they weren't surrounded by litter etc). You have to expect these kinds of things at these popular attractions.

We enjoyed walking along the ramparts for a section, but had to turn back once we got to the huge tower (which you can't by-pass), as having to climb all those stairs was beyond our kids.

The Princess Tower is a nice touch, engages the kids for 15-20 minutes and is nicely done. The 'Princess' tells a brief story and lets the kids interact with her and never lets it get to drawn out or boring.

We only got to see the Bowman show briefly from the ramparts but it looked good!

We did, however, get to see the bird show, 'The Falconer's Quest' 3 times and it was well worth it. The show is fantastic, even in drizzle (which we had on the 2nd day) and both of my kids loved it. They have a good selection of birds (from memory - Stellar's Sea Eagle, Harris Hawks, Bone Eating Vulture, Bald Eagle, Peregrin Falcon, Hawk-Owl and one enormous great bird the name of which I forget but it was as big as me and I'm 6ft 1in). Most of the birds are allowed to fly above and over the audience, some of them (the smaller ones) deliberately fly very low (in fact we routinely had to duck, which the kids loved) and you get to see them in flight up close. It's all very well done and there's also a story aspect to it, which also makes it more engaging, not that it needs to be.

The bird show really is a highlight of the visit and I recommend that you do it more than once - the best position is right in the middle of the seating area, so you get the birds flying right over your head.

Overall, considering it's 'just a castle', we really enjoyed our visit. They really have tried to make the whole place better than your average castle site and as a result they've made it interesting, engaging and there are some fun aspects for the kids too, which is a real plus for those with young kids.

We'd happily go back for a day out, I imagine it's even better in better weather.

I think everyone should see it once, but if you are adults traveling without kids it may be a bit much unless you get a Tower suite. I was travelling with a male friend that we were not okay sharing a room so we had to do a cabin and it was awkward to say the least. He ended up in a bunk bed and I was in a regular bed, but that was the best option for people not sharing beds. It would be great for kids and I will bring my 7 year old daughter here for sure, but the decor is very very Ren Fair cheesy and the castle has been made very commercial, touristy, and museum like. For grown ups I would much rather suggest Thornbury castle (you can stay in the castle and they have incredible food) or Sudeley. You cannot stay inside Sudeley, but it is BEAUTIFUL more historically accurate and they have on site cottages more for adults.

I still thought Warwick was an amazing place and lovely, but more of a modern attraction and for families.

What a fantastic day out. 8 adults and 1 14 year old teenager all gad a great day. Outside there is much to see and do from a very fun horrible history maze to lovely gardens and the rampart and Tower walks.

There is an excellent bird of prey display which is on for free a couple of times during the day weather permitting.

Food and drink venues are plentiful but like most of these places they do take advantage of their captive audience and price things accordingly.

Inside there is a large building to explore with displays of weapons, armour, tapastries, paintings etc.

THE highlight for our group, was the dungeon tour/show. You pay extra but it is well worth it. Its sort of horrible histories meets a ghost train. You walk down narrow dimly lit Castle corridors from one room to the next, where you meet a character from the castle (judge, plague woman, monk, torturer etc) each one is very engaging, informative, scary, funny and disgusting. This, I think was for over 10s only, under 16s accompanied by adults and not for the claustrophobic or those of a nervous disposition. You will laugh, jump and scream and laugh again.

Highly recommended.

Visited with children aged 4-11 and a great day out was had by all. The castle is magnificent and it came to life with the wax models, videos, shows and displays. We all had an action packed, fun filled day which ended superbly with the amazing birds of prey show. Highly recommend for a fantastic family day out.

They have gone to great lengths to ensure your visit is enjoyable. You could easily spend most of the day here there is so much to do. The dungeon experience is one of those things you should do once, but I wouldn't pay the extra a 2nd time. There are also other add-ons along the way that are offered to you so be careful that you don't end up spending a fortune.
