Warwick Castle - Britain's Ultimate Castle

With a history dating back over 1,000 years, Warwick Castle will take you to an age of  banquets, battles and royal grandeur. Breathtakingly graceful, medieval Warwick Castle is really superb. Occupied by eerily lifelike wax residents courtesy of Madame Tussuad's, see and hear the Earl of Warwick's arrangements for battle. And visit its entirely manicured grounds and experience its overt sense of history, and it will raise your spirit. Take a journey through the impressive interiors, armor displays, frightening dungeon (complete with torture chamber), ghost tower and mill house.

The Admission area to the Castle is at the main entrance. At the Castle you will find Cash machines/ATMs, toilet facilities, three Gift Shops, and the Coach House Restaurant for dining.

Audio Tours are now available for the Great Hall and State Rooms for under $4. A Knight's Tale is available for children for 
about $2.50. The Audio Tours can also be reserved online at the Castle's website while purchasing your pass, and is available in English, French, German and Japanese. Guide books are also available and can be ordered online for pick-up at the castle entrance.
