Tour Schedule

Experience a totally electrifying visit to Britain’s ultimate castle.  You’ll be immersed in over 1000 years of jaw-dropping history, where ancient myths and spellbinding tales will set your imagination alight.  Meet history face to face and be prepared to participate in Castle life, from battles and gore, to romance and chivalry.

Explore the 60 acres of landscaped grounds and gardens, which include the beautiful Peacock Garden and Conservatory, the Victorian Rose Garden and Pageant Field.  Throughout the year there is a fantastic programme of events including birds of prey, jousting and the world’s largest trebuchet in action.

Visitors can also experience Time Tower, a brand new attraction.  Take a journey through time on a whirlwind adventure through Warwick Castle’s incredible history.  Time Tower is an immersive audio visual experience, featuring Castle characters as they embark on an exciting adventure and travel 1,100 years into the past!

Don’t miss

The East Front – Marvel at the Castle’s mighty defensive towers and ramparts including the gatehouse portcullis.

The Great Hall and State Rooms – Fully restored to their 17th Century elegance and home to the Castle’s most prized artefacts.

Secrets and Scandals – Experience life, upstairs and downstairs, in a Victorian household.

The Mound – Explore the trial to the top of the oldest part of the Castle with splendid views of the Castle and grounds.

Kingmaker – Experience the sights and smells of 15th Century battle.

Grounds and Gardens – Relax in stunning ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped gardens on the banks of the River Avon.

The Trebuchet – Experience the Warwick Castle Trebuchet, the World’s largest mediaeval siege machine.

The Castle Dungeon – We invite you to delve into the most blood curdling parts of Warwick Castle’s history.

The Towers and Ramparts – Climb to the top of Guy’s and Caesar’s towers on the rampart trail.

Bear Tower – The Fifteenth Century: The county of Warwickshire and the heraldic crest of the Earls of Warwick are represented by a Bear and Ragged Staff, symbols whose history can be traced back to Warwick Castle including the keeping of a bear on site in the fifteenth century.  In heraldry, a bear represents courage – but who is brave enough to venture into the never-seen-before Tower with its recently unearthed bear pit?

Watergate Tower – The Sixteenth Century: Reputedly haunted by the ghost of Sir Fulke Greville – playwright, poet, Member of Parliament…and victim of a gruesome murder – the Watergate Tower tells the tale of a notable life brought short by a disloyal, dagger-wielding servant.  Fulke’s restless spirit is said to roam the tower – just one reason few people in living memory have ventured inside.

Guards’ Room – The Seventeenth Century:  In 1642, during the Civil War, Warwick Castle – a stronghold for Parliamentary forces under its owner, Robert Greville – was besieged by Royalists stationed at St Mary’s Church in Warwick.  This Guards’ Room at the top of Guy’s Tower was remodelled to fire cannons rather than arrows: visitors can experience the musty, smoky living conditions endured by the guards as they awaited attack and bore the ultimately futile siege.

FAQ’s

Will the tour pick-up from my hotel?

Not unless you are staying at a hotel that is a designated pick-up (you will see options for these before you pay).  This is because of Government actions to help prevent pollution, no tour operators have been allowed to make individual hotel pick-ups since 1st April 2017.

Are there toilets on the coaches?

Some coaches have toilets, some do not, but on all tours there are regular comfort stops of no longer than 2 hours apart, plus all places visited have toilets on site.

Will we have time for a full lunch stop whilst on tour?

Unless you book a tour that includes a specific lunch stop then no.  Most tours are targeted at seeing as much as possible in one day and do not have time for a full stop.  There are options to buy food and snacks at all sites visited, but these can be expensive and most people prefer to bring food and drink with them.  Supermarkets, e.g. Tesco Express offer excellent and great value, pre-prepared food that is ideal for this.  Here is a store finder link.

Will the tour return to for example London at the time stated or can it be late?

Most tours return at the expected time, but this is always subject to traffic and it is possible there could be a delay and so it is always wise to allow plenty of spare time if you are planning on booking theatre shows, trains or flights etc. after your tour.

What clothes should I wear?

It is always wise to check the weather forecast before setting out.  It is good to plan in case of rain, with perhaps a shower coat and umbrella.  There will likely be quite a bit of walking on tours and comfy shoes are a must and if any of the tour is on grass e.g. Stonehenge Inner Circle tours then waterproof shoes are sensible.  It is often colder out of London than in London particularly if windy and a jumper or fleece in summer are wise and a warm coat in winter.

If visiting London how much time will it take to see all the main sites, will we have time for more than one out of London tour if we only have a week? How long in advance should I book tours?

It is a common mistake that people think it may take six days to see London and only allow a day for out of London tours.  However there is so much to see out of London that four days to go out of London will be an amazing experience to see maybe all these locations, Dover, Canterbury, Leeds Castle, Hampton Court, Windsor, Winchester, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath, Stratford, Oxford and Warwick.

There are excellent day tours of London that see all of the main attractions in one day and then perhaps allow a further two days to see the Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour and other London attractions not included on the main tours and do not forget to book your show/theatre tickets well in advance too.

These are all very popular tours, most sell out well in advance and it is wise to book your tours, theatre and attractions several months in advance and you will find good planning in advance will optimise your holiday.

Is it better value to tour sites of London and out of London sites on our own, perhaps hiring a car?

No, fixed tours of both London and out of London are much better value than visiting sites individually and you will find going individually entrance costs alone will add up to more than the fixed tours, even before you factor in travel costs.

Do tours pick-up from any of the London airports?

Sorry no tours depart or return from any UK airports.  There are however excellent rapid express trains for example the Heathrow Express.

Can you help me find a discounted best value hotel? Plus theatre/shows and other attractions?

Yes we certainly can and here are some useful links.
