Warwick Castle // Adventure

A couple of weekends ago, on a Sunday morning in August, my friend called me and asked if I would like to visit Warwick Castle with him. Even though it’s only a couple of hours drive from London, I’ve never been, so I was more than happy to go along and see what Warwick Castle had to offer.

Before we set off our on adventure the weather was truly beautiful but in good old English fashion that soon changed and upon our arrival at the castle the heaven’s decided to open. I’d like to think our British stiff upper lip came in to play and even though we were getting positively drenched walking around the grounds, the weather didn’t put a damper (excuse the pun) on things.

Before arriving I was unaware that Warwick castle is part of the Merlin Entertainment group who owns attractions such as Thorpe Park, Legoland, Madam Tussauds etc so I didn’t realise it was going to be such a ‘commercial’ experience. What I mean by that is there were character actors walking around, family shows (including horrible histories), burger vans and dungeon scare tours. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a bad thing, there were plenty of families walking around thoroughly enjoying themselves. I just assumed that as it was a castle the atmosphere would be quite subdued but I guess you have to use a lot of tactics to make history enjoyable for the young!

On another note, Warwick castle is quite expensive to get into. I think we paid nearly £60 for two adults (this included the dungeon scare tour), however, there are deals you can get if you book in advance or go online so make sure you use those offers if you do visit! 

A day out at Warwick castle is lovely experience and I can imagine it would be a fantastic family day out. The grounds are highly maintained, along with the interiors and there is so much to learn whilst walking about. I’d highly recommend everyone to visit and learn about the rich history Warwick has to offer!

I also did a vlog whilst at Warwick castle and I'd love it if you had a peak! I try to create interesting and creative montages when doing vlogs and it's not long I promise ;)

Have you ever been to Warwick Castle before? If so, what did you think of the experience? Can you recommend any other castles that I should visit? Let me know!
