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.

Amazing! So much to do. So amazing the age of this castle. Great views! The dungeon tour is excellent! The maze was fun. And were pleasantly surprised by Birds of Prey show this afternoon.
A magnificent castle site to visit. Entertaining and educational. All the shows were great. Joined the castle dungeons tour, it was fun! The time tower was a surprise with a lot of visual shows. Overall a fantastic visit that worthy of 2 days stay at the Knight’s Village.
Good place to visit! Can look around a lot of the castle & interesting things to see & watch. Best to go on a good weather day to get the most of all...the grounds, maze & towers.
Amazing gem of history. Lots to see and do, but if it's winter, wrap up warm! Probably my favourite place in the world. Lots of added parts to have a look at and definitely needs more than one visit to really enjoy it all. Wear comfortable shoes... Also, would recommend the summer as there is so much more to see and do!
Was one of the best Castles we've been to. Sadly some parts closed due to the weather. Really liked the attention to detail and manikins looked really life like. Highly recommended.
