Warwick Castle summer of shows

This summer, Warwick Castle is hosting an array of spectacular shows and events. A visit to the castle is always a full day out, but this year they’ve gone one step further. An already impressive bird of prey show has been transformed into the breathtaking Falconer’s Quest. The thrilling Wars of the Roses returns and the Castle Dungeon is as frightening as ever. During August, certain evenings will see the return of the awesome Dragon Slayer show. We headed to Warwick Castle this week to see what all the fuss is about.

What to do at Warwick Castle

This year we’re delighted to be ambassadors for the fabulous Warwick Castle. We headed there yesterday and realised we’d totally underestimated how much there was to do.

We didn’t arrive until nearly lunch time and the castle closes at 4pm in Winter so we didn’t manage to see everything we wanted to. If you’re a bit more organised and want to plan your visit, here’s a list of what to do at Warwick Castle including events. Head to their website for more information. Inside…
