Britain's Ultimate Castle
A popular visitor and tourist attraction, Warwick Castle offers over 1000 years of history and tradition and is an enjoyment and wonder for all ages.
Situated on the River Avon, the castle was built by William the Conqueror in 1068.
From 1088, it traditionally belonged to the Earl of Warwick but was later taken by Henry II.
Throughout the ages, Warwick Castle has undergone a variety of structural changes and was rebuilt in the 12th Century from being wooden motte-and-bailey into stone.
In 1978, the Castle was purchased by The Tussauds Group where it was opened as a fabulous tourist attraction.
Guided tours of the castle are available for individuals, schools, groups etc.
