Built by William the Conqueror in 1068, Warwick Castle is a motte-and-bailey medieval castle along the River Avon in Warwickshire, England.
Viewing the castle is not only a proper full day activity (unlike other castles in England) but it’s also filled with a wide range of activities.
It’s magical, historical and adventurous all at the same time. It’s one of Britain’s main sights and favourite castles!
If you’re into ghosts it’s been said that a few have been seen in their halls…
From interactive attractions, live entertainment (jousting tournaments, birds-of-prey shows, and a huge catapult), landscaped gardens and beautiful interiors… Warwick Castle has it all! Your day will be packed with things to do.
Warwick castle has something for anyone and everyone.
Witness the preserved ancestral home of Warwick Earls, with ramparts and towers. The interior rooms are immaculately decorated to reflect moments in history, and are home to beautiful portraits and other works of art.
You can climb the winding stairs up and walk on the castle walls. Caesar’s tower and Guy’s tower will give you some amazing views that are worth the trek up the 40 metres of stairs!
