Even the ever breaking rainclouds was nowhere near enough to stop us enjoying everything that the fantastic Warwick Castle has to offer.
Providing a wonderful mix of interaction, shows and displays across its sprawling grounds, there is always so much to take in. From Battlements, towers and turrets to the splendid history laden interiors and Great Hall, the Castle, originating in 1068 having been built by William the Conqueror, has a significant amount to offer and knowledge to impart to any would be explorer. Beneath the castle, rebuilt in stone in the 12th Century, lurks The Castle Dungeon for the brave to venture into, dating back to 1345, at a time when medieval Warwick was gripped by the plague,
Within the grounds of the Castle lies their jousting arena, home of the Knights of Middle England and the centre piece for the Castle’s “War of the Roses Live”, a fantastic display of equestrian theatre and stage combatency around it’s history. The Falconers Quest also delivers a wonderful story, showcasing the talents and agility of the castles impressive Birds of Prey.
A visit that will live long in the memory and a venue we cannot wait to return to next year. An exceptionally big thank you to all the team at Warwick Castle for an incredible visit.
