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?

My 2nd tour with Evans and we had a good bus, bus driver and knowledgeable guide to keep us informed along the way. Warwick Castle was a very nice example of 11th century Norman castle in great condition and the museum was nice as well. The next stop was Stratford-upon-Avon for lunch and a visit to Shakespeare's birth place. Stratford was okay, not a must see, but fine. Last stop is Oxford and we had maybe two hours there with a short guided tour from the guide Andrew which was great, but that left little time to actually visit the Science Museum or the famous Ashmolean Museum. Minor regrets their I'm afraid. Oxford deserves a good half or full day. Will be taking the train from London on my next visit. Traffic out of Oxford was testy and then evening traffic back into London was as well.

The whole experience was very enjoyable and positive. Our guide, Will, was informative, experienced, friendly, kind, and knowledgeable. Between each visit he took the time to check in with each guest to ensure they were comfortable and happy with the trip and tours. We did 3 day trip excursions while here and although all were great, this one was excellent due to our exceptional guide, Will.
