Warwick Castle Warwick

In Warwick Castle, Warwickshire on July 24, 2007 at 9:07 pm

It is expensive to go most places as a family and we had little change from £60 for the 3 of us to visit Warwick Castle. However if you make a day of it is certainly worth it as there is so much to look at and experience here.

There is a good castle ramparts walk up a considerable no of steps up I think Guy’s tower with some terrific views explaining the well chosen position for the castle. Unfortunately the trebuchat wasn’t operating the day we went. The dungeons are always popular and these with their ghastly means of torture extracted the right sense of awe and fear. The oubilette was a scary underground torture in the dungeons basically where they chucked someone and forgot about them and left them to rot.

The Dream of Battle was also a good attraction attempting to put yourself in the position of a young squire learning to fit in battle for the Earl of Warwick.

You need to allow several hours to get around all of the attractions and be prepared to walk quite a bit especially up and down steps. The old castle mound is worth a look. A short walk takes you to the interesting water mill.
