Warwick Castle

Warwick Castle, has for centuries been the home of the mighty Earls of Warwick. Key players in the brutal conflicts of the mediaeval period.
Richard Neville, the most powerful baron in England, helped depose both Henry VI and Edward IV becoming known as the Kingmaker. See the 'Kingmaker - A preparation for battle' exhibition, bringing to life the atmosphere of the mediaeval household.

Warwick Castle is a splendid and dramatic fortress rising majestically from the banks of the River Avon on a site first fortified by William the Conqueror in 1068.

Warwick Castle has been preserved magnificently: towers, dungeons, state rooms, all can be visited. Madame Tussauds, the operators have a special 'Royal Weekend Party' exhibit, where a young Winston Churchill and others are guests with the future Edward VII.
