Highlights
  • Warwick Castle - Rising imposingly above the River Avon, this world-famous castle can trace its history back more than 1,100 years. Home of the Earls of Warwick, at one point the most powerful noble family in England, the castle has served as a fortification, stately home and even a prison for royalty.

Warwick Castle’s long, bloody history is steeped in tales of treachery, conquest, murder, mystery and intrigue; the events that took place behind its walls are intertwined with the fabric of English history, and every stone in this ancient castle has a story to tell. Historical figures and events feature throughout the history of this magnificent castle, including William the Conqueror, The English Civil War, Edward IV and the War of the Roses.

Travel through time and bring the history of Warwick Castle to life at the Time Tower, explore the lavish State Rooms and wander through its immaculately maintained gardens, including the Victorian Rose Garden and Peacock Garden.

As you traverse its ancient walls and ramparts, be sure to visit the original dungeon of the castle at Caesar’s Tower, where you can still see the graffiti left behind by prisoners hundreds of years ago. Experience one of the many living history displays on offer, from live jousting and archery to birds of prey displays.

Learn all about this and more on this fantastic tour to one of England’s best-loved and most historic castles.

Huge Fun Castle! - The Whole Experience was Awesome! The Fact you can wander at your leisure, also. We loved every bit of it from the decorations, to the medieval style looks of the enormous Castle. Also all the armory. The dungeon scare tour was Fun!

Nice day out - I visited Warwick castle with my son, it was a great day out and really enjoyable as we were able to plan our time on our own. The view from the towers is magnificent.

Evans and Evans failed - Warwick castle is really great. Evans and Evans failed and never sent them. I missed the first train out to Warwick and only had half a day there because of it.

No value from company- plan it yourself - Plan this trip for yourself. The point of going through a travel agency is convenience- which is what I wanted with our family of five. Instead, I paid money for extra complications. No one met us at the designated meeting point- which meant we missed the first train. When I called, there was no apology- only said the would send tickets and welcome letter by email. They sent train tickets. I had to contact them for instructions in the welcome letter. They sent that. Then I had to contact them for the castle tickets. They sent those then. This process left us waiting in a freezing train station for over an hour with young children. There are two trains that go to the Warwick area. The instructions are so poor, that we got on the wrong train and had to make a connection. All in all- it is easy enough to do yourself, and that way you can plan it on your own schedule and not rely on a company that may or may not help.
