Warwick Castle, Warwick

3.8
In a country full of outstanding medieval fortresses, Warwick Castle is one of the most magnificent. Originally built by William the Conqueror in 1068, the castle today features imposing ramparts and towers looming over manicured green lawns and the Avon River. It also hosts a lively scene of historical interpreters reenacting medieval life. Check out the trebuchet, a giant catapult that interpreters have shot some 6,500 times since its introduction in 2005. Head down to the castle dungeon to meet a torturer, a judge, and the castle cook. Try to catch a free tour to learn about the defensive purposes of some of the castle's most prominent features. Exhibits and performances change constantly, so check the schedule before you visit. If you visit on a Saturday, consider staying into the evening for the extravagant Kingmaker's Medieval Banquet in the great hall. Make Warwick Castle a centerpiece of your Warwick vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Warwick tour planner.

  • Brilliant. Lots to see and do. Incredible history and a beautiful setting. The knights village is great fun. The food is good and wholesome. The entertainment with the Warwick Warriors really is great fun and makes the evening meal. Fantastic for kids, young and grown up😁. Bravo to Warwick. Can't wait to visit again😁
  • Great visit even though the weather was not to good the kids loved the horrible history maze and the bird show the guy that did the show today was EXCELLENT! !! Loved Archie the owl. Peacocks and peacock garden lovely I loved the house shame there were not that many wax models as Henry and his wife's were fab ! and the kids enjoyed the Princess tower . Only moans were £10.00 parking and cost of 4 self service hot drinks £9.00 ouch !!!! The bird show made up for it 😊 Thanks
  • Stayed at glamping site (again!!!). Fantastic place for all the family.... fantastic staff and atmosphere..... love the Knights lodges... pricey but worth it!
  • Brilliant day out especially when the Haunted Castle is on, main events very entertaining and enjoyable, birds of prey show is a must also, stayed at the knights village which includes two days at the park, breakfast and the evening meal was a carvery... Amazing
  • Amazing day out. Too much to do properly in one day. Make sure you don't miss the timed things you want to see. When travelling by car don't go in the first car park you see - 20 min walk to the castle. Make sure you go to the best ice cream van - waffle cones and loads of flavours. The Dungeons were really well done, as is the jousting. The birds of prey are magnificent - sit above the arena for the best experience. There's a lot of steps but if you can manage them it's worth it for the views. There's so much more. Food in The Coach House is excellent. Warwick may have been the King Maker but Warwick Castle is the King of the Castles!
