The Castle has played such a huge place in history, being originally built by William the Conqueror in 1068. And has since then seen many dramatic historical events unfold.
Just before visiting the castle I had really enjoyed watching The White Queen, which was all about The War of the Roses I never took much notice of the war of the roses when we studied it at school, but this series made it so exciting. Warwick Castle was where a lot of this History evolved. And the Castle was full of paintings and artefacts from this time. It was so interesting, and fantastic to be able to relate it all to the story of King Edward and the Earl of Warwick.
The boys loved looking around the castle at all the armour for horses as-well as humans. It is a very interactive castle and the boys loved being able to try armour on. It made the visit so real for them.
Merlin’s Tower was fantastic. It is a theatrical trip to Merlin’s Tower where you get to meet Merlin’s assistants and the Dragon. It was so magical and very believable and worth paying extra for. I believe there is also a Princess tower but we never got to visit that.
