About Warwick Castle

Warwick's monumental castle is one of England's most iconic heritage sites. It was founded by William the Conqueror in 1068 and has continued to dominate the Warwickshire skyline for over 900 years. Over the centuries, Warwick Castle has been both a fortress and country house. As a Norman fortress, it played a crucial role in protecting the town as it developed into a prosperous settlement in the Middle Ages. After its defensive role diminished, the castle was saved from ruin and converted into a sumptuous country house in the 17th century - the project cost some £3 million in today's money. Inside the castle, you'll find a superb collection of furniture, porcelain, sculptures and paintings dating from the 17th and 18th centuries.

For an insight into medieval warfare, head to the armoury, where there's an extensive collection of weaponry, then check out the huge working trebuchet, a vast catapult that was used during sieges. The bravest visitors can explore the castle dungeons, which offer a spine-chilling interactive experience packed with creepy characters and gruesome stories. Back in the light of day, relax in the castle's beautiful grounds, and round off your day with a meal or a snack in one of four restaurants and cafes.
