Overview

Experience over 1,000 years of history at Warwick Castle.

Deep in the heart of England and only a few miles from Shakespeare's Stratford, lies the magnificent Warwick Castle. Set against the impressive backdrop of the River Avon, this imposing fortress has stood to tell the tale of the last 1,000 years and today still captivates visitors from around the world.

Once inside the Castle walls, the stark contrasts throughout its thousand year history are brought together, each telling their own intriguing story. From the soaring ramparts and towers and the chilling Dungeon and Ghost Tower to the grandeur and elegance of the Great Hall, State Rooms and Victorian Royal Weekend Party and the conspiracy and courage of the medieval Kingmaker.

Warwick Castle is brought to life, not only by the magnificent and varied attractions it has to offer, but also with its extensive, all year special events. Visitors can now also visit the Castle Dungeon; this new experience is set to echo part of the Castle’s past, taking you back to 1345, when the town was gripped by the plague.

In true Dungeon style, gore seekers will be greeted by decaying bodies, chanting monks, torture implements, execution and ‘the labyrinth of lost souls’ - a fantastic scary mirror maze.

Access

Warwick Castle was built as a medieval fortress and, as such, it has a large number of steps and narrow doorways which present limitations for mobility restricted guests.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for wheelchair users to gain access to the majority of the indoor attractions at the Castle. These attractions have steps at the entrances and exits and there are narrow corridors throughout.

The pathways through the grounds are all tarmac and enable access around the 60 acres of beautiful grounds and gardens.
