Horrible Histories Maze
A great attraction for kids. Learn fun facts about Warwick Castle, collect stamps for your time passport and go back in time whilst exploring the maze. Prizes at the end for those who complete their passport.
Adventure into the Castle’s past and discover how Warwick Castle for over one thousand years controlled the middle of England. Discover the Castle’s darker side, with tales of treachery, destruction and bloodshed in an interactive multimedia experience.
The Castle Dungeon
Entrance only for the brave! In a 50 minute walkthrough experience, learn the dark and scary moments of the Castle’s history. Meet characters such as the torturer, the Castle cook, the judge and the witches of Warwick, each with their own unique tales. This is a fun and unique interactive experience, but given the material, it is recommended for children over the age of 10.
See the Trebuchet, the world’s large siege machine in the world. This is built as an accurate imagination of ancient trebuchets, which were used in times of war to catapult large rocks and stones in order to breach the castle walls. Also nearby is the Ballista, an ancient crossbow that was used to fire arrows in the heat of war to kill the other side.
Towers and Ramparts
View the defensive towers, built high up and away from the castle wall in order to give archers an optimal vision to strike their enemy down below. Also see The Barbican, an exterior walled passage built with arrow slits and murder holes to make it difficult for an attacking army to enter the Castle. The Gatehouse was another clever defensive system that made the Castle very difficult to breach.
In the heart of castle lie the stunning grand interiors. Admire the Great Hall, which houses an impressive collection of armor and a huge cauldron, as well as the luxurious state rooms and the peaceful private Chapel.
Discover the 64 acres of stunning gardens, including beautiful ponds, manicured hedges and exquisite fountains. Cross the River Avon onto the island, which houses a grand trebuchet and if you are lucky, catch a re-enactment of knights battling each other in armour. Also spot the brightly coloured peacocks which roam freely throughout the garden.
Another great activity for kids! Explore Warwick Castle’s imaginative playground which designed as a mini-fortress with slides, swings and walkways.
