Stir all the Senses this Easter at Warwick Castle

  • Horrible Histories® Mediaeval Mayhem: 28 March-12 April
  • Travel Through Time In The All-New Time Tower: From 28 March
  • Mediaeval Glamping Returns From May
  • Plus: The Castle Dungeon, Mighty Trebuchet, Flight of the Eagles, Kingmaker and The Princess Tower – and more!

Warwick Castle takes families on a scintillating sensory journey this Easter with two free* new attractions to inspire all ages: Time Tower (opens 28 March) and Horrible Histories® Mediaeval Mayhem (28 March to 12 April).

No ordinary storytelling here: Horrible Histories® returns to the Castle (28 March-12 April) promising Mediaeval Mayhem aplenty with live actors, games and shows – oh, and smells – from days of yore in an exciting encampment in front of the Castle. Home to weird and wonderful characters plagued by poverty and pestilence, sharing nasty nuggets from history, Mediaeval Mayhem is home to a bedraggled troupe of colourful characters, all set to reveal their pitiful past – and the funniest bits of history along the way!

Then, inside the brand new Time Tower – opening on 28 March in Watergate Tower in The Castle Courtyard – take flight with a time-travelling, roving raven on a quest to find the truth. Who was Ethelfleda and why did she choose Warwick for her fortress? How did Warwick fall into ruin under the Tudors? Why were priceless treasures hurled from the Great Hall windows..? No holds barred, this is an immersive journey through the mists of time – literally: Time Tower is an unmissable part of a fun-packed full day out for all the family.

Mediaeval Glamping makes a welcome return to the Castle’s riverside woodland this spring (from 24 May) with 45 tents including seven luxury King’s Tents and 38 Warwick Tents, all with wood-framed beds, electricity and Wi-Fi (ideal for posting those glamping selfies) . Costing from £200 per night for a family of up to five, the price includes breakfast, two-day Castle admission, car parking and entertainment. King’s Tents feature opulent four-poster beds, ideal for those kings and queens demanding a little extra comfort!

Throughout the year, there’s never a dull day at Warwick Castle and Easter is no exception with daily attractions from soaring eagles and storytelling princesses, to sumptuous treasure tours and salacious secrets all on show:

  • The Mighty Trebuchet – see the largest working siege machine in the World in action as it catapults a real fireball in front of guests’ eyes!
  • The Royal Weekend Party – Join Daisy, Countess of Warwick at one of her royal parties and discover what life was like in the highest of -society;
  • The Princess Tower – Little Princesses’ wishes come true in the Castle’s Princess Tower where they can dress up and hear stories of centuries passed;
  • The Castle Dungeon – Be horrified as actors recount gruesome tales of the Castle’s bloody past. Only the bravest visitors dare venture deep down into the nearby Gaol, infamous for its oubliette where prisoners were sent to be forgotten…
