Open 364 days a year, Warwick Castle is ideally located in the heart of the country. Just 40 minutes from Birmingham and 1 hour and 40 minutes from London, the Castle is easily accessible from Junction 15 of the M40.

Wars of the Roses Live
It’s 1455 and the House of Lancaster holds the English Throne. King Henry VI’s crown is challenged by the House of York. The rival houses clash in battle and the bloody war that ensues was to last over 30 years.

Are you brave enough to enter the Castle Dungeon? This exciting 50 minute walk through brings together live actors, shows and spectacular special effects that will send chills down your spine (over 10’s only – it’s that scary!)

With so much to see and do, why not make your special day a special stay?

Stay over in seasonal Mediaeval Glamping or mediaeval themed Lodges all year-round, Knight’s Village is the perfect short break destination for your family!

History

Enjoy the beautiful grounds and gardens of Warwick Castle including the Mound which was first built in 1068 on the orders of William the Conqueror.

The Mound formed the most important part of the Norman Castle’s defence  system. The Peacock Garden, designed by the Victorian landscape gardener Robert Marnock includes topiary peacocks. Running gently down to the river is the Pageant Field, flanked on either side by trees, of which some, like the Cedars  of Lebanon, are over 200 years old.

The transformation from a fortress to a stately home created by one of Britain’s greatest landscape gardeners, Lancelot “Capability ” Brown.

It is believed that Warwick Castle was Brown’s first independent, castle commission and his achievements here during the 1750’s won him praise and national recognition.
