Fantastic day out 5 out of 5 stars

I’ve visited Warwick Castle a number of times over the years, each time I go it’s just as wonderful. A highlight is the amazing birds of prey show they have, I’ve never seen anything like it!

Fab day out - look out for offers 4 out of 5 stars

We had a brilliant day out at Warwick castle last weekend. The kids really enjoyed the falconry display as well as the various other events going on throughout the day, such as jousting. The costumes of the event staff were really impressive. I would say, that the day was quite pricey. It wasn't just the cost of entry that we felt was quite steep but there was hidden additional costs scattered about the castle. It's definitely worth looking for offers before attending rather than just rocking up and paying on the day. They did give us a voucher for a free return visit though, which I thought was a nice touch. All in all, a fab day out, highly recommended with kids as there is so much to do!

Trebuchet launch was incredible 4 out of 5 stars

So well preserved! 5 out of 5 stars

I have come here twice already! I love this castle! There are plenty of shows and demonstrations going on throughout the day. Loved the cannon ball release! The rooms and halls are so well preserved. It literally feels as if you step back in time! The tours are very nice as well and free. Walking around the gardens was so lovely. A lot of room to lay around and play. Toilets are well-kept and clean. We did the dungeons as well and it was fascinating! Scary, but very informative. Not for the faint-hearted. The best castle I have been to in England! They also have activities throughout the day fit for children and a very fun maze. It's great for the whole family.

Brilliant Day Out! 5 out of 5 stars

My family and I had a wonderful day out at Warwick Castle! It's a great place to educate your children on the history of the castle, as well as inspire them with incredible views.
