f you are stuck for a day out this half term then Warwick Castle could provide all the answers! 

What is there to do?

We have visited many times and it is definitely a family favourite! The boys have been going since they were little, racing around with swords in hand and joining in the Knight school but still love the many attractions for all ages.

Horrible Histories maze 

The Horrible Histories Maze takes you on a journey through time from Vikings to World War – love a bit of educational fun! 

The Castle Dungeons

This is for children aged 10+ and the first time we had done it as a family. It is an extra £9 each on top of the standard Castle entry but for 45 minutes of entertainment it is worth it to keep the tweens and teens occupied! 

We have been to York, London and Blackpool Dungeons and Warwick Castle Dungeons do not disappoint. There is lots of humour mixed in with the frightening and horror fuelled stories. As you travel through the Dungeons you meet characters in different experiences from kitchen boy dismembering the recently deceased doctor to witches on trial to plague ridden townspeople. The acting is superb and the experience exhilarating. If you don’t like enclosed spaces and being plunged into darkness regularly then avoid!!

Winter birds of prey

This incredible show takes place in the new arena which is located close to the Trebauche. Don’t miss seeing these magnificent birds in action! It is definitely one of my must sees!

Castle tours

Throughout the day there are lots of tours you can join to learn more about the history of Warwick Castle.

The Mighty Trebuchet

This has to be one of the highlights of the day for the boys! The atmosphere is tense as you find yourself whisked back in time to learn all about the role of the trebuchet in Warwick Castle’s history.  

As well as these attractions you can explore the grounds, walk the Castle Towers and Ramparts, visit the Time Tower and the Princess Tower, Kingmaker, watch the amazing Bowman show and try your hand at archery yourself.

Have you visited Warwick Castle? What is your favourite part?

There is always something good to do at Warwick Castle and the fun is ever changing! Just in time for the Easter holidays sees the new show, The Falconer’s Quest arrive on 6 April. This will feature 70 high flying Birds of Prey take to the skies with an amazing display of aerial acrobatics. We really can’t wait to see that!
