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.

  • Well worth the visit. reasonably priced too. I visit just before Christmas. I gave a very festive feel. A good day out for the family.
  • Brilliant weekend at Warwick castle, great money and wonderful place to look around with lots of activities through out the day, all the stuff were great, every single one that walked past would say hello and ask how we was doing and all were so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be going back.
  • We came here straight after getting married for our photos. What a great day!! Photos were amazing. The day was great and the staff were brilliant. Was a day to remember! ❤️
  • I really like the castle. There is plenty of activities to go thru and will keep you entertained. A fee castles that you can visit and not get bored half way! Specially perfect if you want to take your kids with you.
  • The castle itself is a little disappointing. More a stately home than a castle really other than the wall walk. I'm sure there's lots of history to it if you like that kind of thing, but I'm a hardcore castle fan. The performances on the day (May half term) were great however. Birds of prey brilliant with really entertaining bird trainer. Bow and arrow demo was great also and the trebuchet firing was something special too.
