Stop At: Warwick Castle, Castle Lane, Warwick CV34 4QU England

Over a thousand years of history are waiting to be discovered at this fantastic medieval castle. Set against the River Avon within 64 acres of landscaped parkland, this beautiful castle once belonged to the most powerful man in England, The Earl of Warwick.

Learn how the 'Kingmaker' was the only man who dared defy the King, and how he defeated the armies of King Edward IV in battle before taking the King himself as a prisoner. Explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons.

In the castle's 14th-century gaol, the original dungeon, see graffiti left behind by prisoners hundreds of years ago. How many names can you spot?

Enjoy a fascinating insight into tales of his family life and admire rare artefacts on displays from the Shakespeare Trust's world-class collections.

This was an excellent day-long bus tour to the Midlands. Warwick Castle is an eye opener as a genuine Norman castle. Stratford upon Avon us a delight and the focus on Shakespeare is both interesting and enlightening. Oxford is always a treat. The guide was both informative, interesting and very approachable. An accommodating driver added to the experience. A very worthwhile tour.

A great day in the English countryside with a well informed guide and experienced coach driver. The visit to Warwick castle was good. Great history. Oxford was good and the fact that the guide was a native was a treat. The Cotswalds were beautiful even on a dreary winter day.
Very good tour.

The day trip from London was a perfect combination of famous student city, nature, history and castle-building! With open eyes and ears I learnt a lot and got detailed answers to my questions; both the guide and the driver were really great and should earn 5 scores!

Warwick Castle was fun to explore and Stratford-upon-Avon was an adorable little town! Being in Shakespeare's birthplace was amazing! We loved driving through the gorgeous Cotswolds and Oxford was a great place to visit - so rich in history!
