Things you need to about visiting warwick castle.

Hey readers, 


If you are looking for a brilliant day out in Warwickshire than one fab place to visit is Warwick Castle.




History.

Warwick castle has so much history dating back well over 1,100 years.

There are many stories about the different architecture changes over the years, where battles have occurred and then the castle, in the end, being used as a royal stately home. 

Rooms.

There are many rooms you can view and see how the royals used to live with the decor and the mannequins help give you a feel of what it used to be like. 









You can walk around the entire castle and up all the different towers. Once you reach the top you can see the breathtaking views of Warwick and beyond. 

Grounds.

Overall Warwick castle showcases over 64 acres of stunning grounds where you can wander and take in the atmosphere. 

During the warmer weather, you can picnic as there are plenty of benches to have to make a day out for the whole family. 

Within the Warwick Castle grounds are the beautiful peacock gardens with water fountains and you can see many peacocks roaming freely, which my 6 and 8-year-old loved observing how they behaved. 






Horrible History Maze. 

At the beginning entrance on the left of the grounds, you can get a passport card and find stamps in the Horrible Histories mazes.

The maze has different features of history such as the Slimy Tudors and Frightful First World War. 

The maze will get children who love the show or books of Horrible Histories and it is open all year round and included in the ticket.

 The maze is a fun place to get lost and find many dead ends and tricks to stop you in your path. 

Once you get all 6 stamps you can claim a free pop badge at the shop in the grounds. 







Birds of Prey. 

During the winter season, there is the Bird of Prey where you can see the birds of prey show what powerful and beautiful creatures they are. 

These include vultures and owls that fly from the castle ramparts. 

Castle Dungeons.

There are the castle dungeons, though with the age of my boys they didn't recommend it (6 & 8) so we opted out on that to visit. 

Nonetheless, this is another attraction offered at Warwick Castle where you go down and experience the dungeons and see live actors demonstrate the darkest and bloodiest times at the castle. 

The Time Tower.

The Time Tower goes through a visual journey of how Warwick Castle began and how it became the place that it is now.

 You can listen to the stories of the powerful figures that shaped the history of Warwick castle. 



Wintertime.

During the winter season, Warick Castle opens from 10am till 4pm.

 There are plenty of toilets including disabled and baby changing facilities. 

Merlin Pass. 

Warwick Castle is also part of Merlin Attractions (I have a done a post here explaining all about Merlin).

So you can visit as many times as you want with the pass, which is handy for me living not far from Warwick. 

However, getting to Warwick Castle is straightforward enough the Castle is well signposted, and less than two miles from junction 15 of the M40. 

Address.

Warwick Station is approximately one mile from the Castle. A direct service into London Marylebone (1 hour 45 minutes) or Birmingham Snow Hill is available.

Also to mention that Warwick Castle does support the Sunflower Lanyard scheme for those with hidden disabilities.
