   Imagine a totally electrifying day out at Britain’s ultimate castle. Where you can immerse yourself in a thousand years of jaw-dropping history – come rain or shine.Where ancient myths and spell-binding tales set your imagination alight, and your hair on end. Where princesses are pampered and maidens are wooed, as winners become true heroes and losers are confined to dark, dank dungeons to be forgotten for eternity. It could only be Warwick Castle.

I surprised my mum with a day out to Warwick Castle as neither had been before and I must say we all had an absolutely fantastic day! The staff were impeccable, the attractions and tours were outstanding and the the grounds were immaculate. 100% would recommend and we WILL be returning in a few months! amazing day.

Had a brilliant day out here on a cold but bright Saturday. We booked our tickets online in advance so it was £15.50 each for the castle and the dungeons which I thought was very good value. Especially as the dungeons alone would've been £9 on the day! Lots to see, plenty of shows and demonstrations, and a very enjoyable... More

We were really looking forward to our trip but we're really disappointed as the castle had no character whatsoever, it's a complete money making machine with no historical information. They try to get your money every way possible, including £6 to park (it's free to park in Warwick town on a Sunday so I would park there and walk the... More

great castle, lots to see, would highly recommend buying the extra ticket for the dungeon also. Was wonderful to see the bird show, very impressive but the bowman show was a bit disappointing though, as it was only aimed at school trips and nothing much happened.

This castle was so much fun! Did the dungeon tour (not recommended for young kids) it was great! You can go up in the turrets and walk along the top, they have a the main part fully decorated for the different periods of use. There was a Merlin tower in another part of the castle and also a falconer put... More

Visited Friday 19 February with two grandchildren aged 6 and 3 and one son - 35. Easy to find, parking was very close to castle and the gran children's Christmas present of a merlin card for each of them made it a very reasonably priced day.
