Warwick Castle brings to life more than 1,100 years of history with knights in shining armor, jousting battles and pampered princesses. Set on the River Avon and surrounded by rolling parklands, this magnificent medieval castle compliments its natural setting with preserved history and fascinating characters.
Climb the castle ramparts and marvel at the lavish interiors before entering the Time Tower to retrace the story of Warwick Castle through an immersive audio-visual experience. Afterward, watch the world’s largest trebuchet launch a fireball through the air, be blown away by the Birds of Prey show or try to escape the Horrible Histories Maze.
Don’t miss the interactive walkthrough at the Castle Dungeon, which retells the darkest, bloodiest and most gruesome moments in the castle’s history. The Princess Tower lets little princesses dress up for a photo. When it’s time to refuel, head to the Coach House Restaurant for fish and chips or the Undercroft Restaurant for pizza and pasta.
Warwick Castle is about two hours’ drive from London and 45 minutes from Birmingham. Trains arrive at Warwick Railway Station, only 10 minutes’ walk away. Paid parking is available.
