A marvellous example of a complete mediaeval castle, Warwick has played a dominant role in the power game in England for over one thousand years. Originally the home of the Earls of Warwick, one of whom in the fifteenth century was known as Kingmaker, Warwick Castle has witnessed murder, mystery, intrigue and scandal.
The 14th century Great Hall lies at the centre of the Castle where you can see Oliver Cromwell’s death mask and the shield of Bonnie Prince Charlie. The State Rooms have been restored to their recent grandeur whilst the dungeons and the Torture Chambers have the power to terrify, as has the Ghost Tower.
There are sixty acres of ground and gardens which were landscaped by Capability Brown. Special events, including Jousting, Birds of Prey and a mediaeval festival are organised during the year.
A great day out for all the family.
