    Such a rip off!
    I’m sorry but what a rip off! You have to pay £6 to park and then even though it was 3pm and the castle closed at 4pm, the tickets were £39 each!!! Needless to say we declined!

    Very expensive for not much return
    It's a lovely beautiful preserved castle .... but it is stupidly expensive .... £39 on the door, but a "mere" £22 if booked in advance. There's not that much to see as only part of one wing is accessible, and I really don't know why we have to have adventure playgroundswfor the kids Yes I do ... it's run by Merlin Entertainments ... more focused on revenue than Heritage And you have to pay £6 to park as well

    Fun but not the undercroft cafe.
    Castle bit smaller than expected but was good fun. App didn’t include food ordering as suggested?. Undercroft cafe: Very poor service by one rude staff member. Queue for an hour, no sign to say what you’re queuing for so many people were confused, no menu in advanced so you have to suddenly decide at the till and then rudely told they don’t have what you want and no possible way they could put a sign out saying sold out?, How many people want to queue for an hour to turn up to a rude childish woman. Archery guys were fun and interactive.

    Expensive and not enough time!
    We went as a family, 4 adults, 3 children yesterday, its a lovely castle, birds of prey and archery shows were good, take your own food and drink as prices were extortionate, 5.95 for tray of chips ! Kids loved the zog playground, unfortunately we had tears come 3.30 as everything was shut up and children never got chance to go into the maze and we had no time to go up into the towers, very expensive parking, we had to park a short walk away due to carpark flooding, and this cost £8 for all day, in total we spent around £250 in total and that was with cheaper online entrance tickets , kids same price as adults, we feel like we need to go back to see missed opportunities but its to expensive..shame as its a lovely place really

    Pre booked tickets NOT honoured.
    Don’t trust pre booked tickets. We booked in October for 6 people. The ticket clearly states “entry to the castle until 4pm. We arrived at 3.40 and were denied entry as “they were full” Presumably they overbook to get as many in as possible. There was no one to complain to, so having driven 200 miles with grandchildren we left utterly disappointed. I emailed my complaint and only got a partial refund after 56 days by involving the CEO of the parent company. Never, never will I trust them, and next year it’s the far superior Blenheim Palace for us.

    My home town still has character.
    I have lived in Warwick since I was a boy. Travelled to the castle with my young nieces. I've been a 1000 times. Back in the day, it was a castle. Best attraction was the rat catcher. My recent visit. Thought it had turned into a Disney world like, fake place, not worth visiting. I was happily surprised history still had a place at the castle. Our tour guide Andrew. What can I say. Genuinely changed my mind. Actual history, actual fun. I don't write many reviews but he seriously deserves this. I've learnt so much about my town and it's origins. I finally get the war of the roses and Warwick's involvement, all of it in 7 minutes. Super informed. My nieces loved it. So worth it. Had to be said. Thanks Andrew and Warwick castle.

    Too busy
    The ice rink was very busy when we went - I think they had booked too many people on either that or they were just not supervised. Would not recommend with kids who have not got much skating experience - it was a shame as the setting was beautiful

    Disappointing
    For the price of the tickets a very underwhelming experience with Santa. Whilst Santa and mother Claus were fabulous, the experience lacked magic and it was my least favourite Santa visit in all of the ones I have done this winter.

    The lights were great but the signage around the castle and within is not very good. Pictures are also quite expensive based on the quality and poor editing.

    Brilliant day out
    We visited on 5th Jan - what a fantastic time we had. The castle and lights were beautiful My husband is in a wheelchair and all the staff were so very kind and helpful. The staff that operated the external lift were spot on. A gentleman that organised the light trail came to speak to us to tell us that there was help around the trail should we need it. Another gentleman from the team caught up with us and pushed my husband around the trail - he was very informative and friendly - what a fantastic team !! Thankyou to everyone for making it such a lovely day - to top if off the weather was kind too !!!

    Amazing tour guide and memorable experience
    The castle was beautiful despite the flooding and we had a lovely day! But by far the highlight was our Henry the 8th tour with the tall guy ( tour guide, Andy? ) ‘The image of Jabba in a cod piece’ will remain with me forever. Thanx Warwick Castle and Thank YOU to him. AAMAZING. Go visit asap he was hilarious and we learnt a lot !!

    Historical Location worth visiting
    An enjoyable time walking round the castle, climbing steps up turrets and visiting castle rooms. River outside castle was flooded but this didn’t impact our three hours at this location. £6 car park is a little pricey but plenty of parking on New Year’s Day when we went. Ice Skating rink was popular and outside eateries looked good. We only had a coffee whilst there but there was good choice of food if required.

    Great day out!
    Beautiful and impressive castle! We enjoyed exploring the wall walk which has information boards. The state rooms were impressive and our visit was enhanced by an excellent guided tour by the very knowledgeable Andrew. We were also lucky to do the Castle Dungeon experience. The actors were very good and it was an edge of your seat experience. The King Maker exhibition could have done with more information about the Earl of Warwick but very engaging for children. Lots of walking so wear suitable footwear and if any mobility issues check ahead. But they were very accommodating for this. Do have lunch at the Tea Room rather than the Undercroft for more choice of food.

We booked a trip to visit the castle as it somewhere we have always wanted to take the kids. We got there at 12pm and as we arrived people were leaving, this was immediately a concern as it only opened at 10.30. When we got in headed straight to look around the castle, as much as this was a lonely castle I have been to other that were much more impressive and informative. We didn't see any knights or princesses which was very disappointing and the castle it's self was a short 30 minute walk around. After that we went to see the falcon show, which was by far the best bit of the whole trip and was safely distances for covid-19 purposes. After that my eldest really wanted to try archery, this was at an extra cost of £5pp. I was very shocked at after paying the best part of £100 to get in they would then charge more! After this we walked around for a while thinking we might find something else to do but no, that was it!! Nothing. As we had a 2 day pass we called it a day and the left walking around the castle wall and towers for the next day. We did go back the next day and stayed all of about an hour and half, so could see why people were in fact leaving at that time on the first day. We get chatting the lovely bowman, this was the first person in the whole 2 days we came across and he was great. He told us all about his arrows and how he made them, he took lots of time to talk to the kids and they loved him. He is the one asset the castle has. Over all I was very disappointed and thought there would be much more to do, I wouldn't recommend spending your money here. There are much better places for half the price.

WOW! What can I say? Hmm, nothing good if i'm honest. First impressions? £6 for parking! Shocking! Got to the ticket gate to be greeted by an elderly member of staff with no welcoming manner whatsoever! We then got into the castle itself and asked if there were any history tours taking place throughout the day. The man who we asked didn't know so had to shout over to his two colleagues who were standing like mannequins on the opposite side of the room! They didn't even bother to come over to tell us themselves. All they did was shout back with a time. No enthusiasm or passion about the place!
By the time we had walked around all the rooms, we wanted to sit and relax with a drink and some food. We walked to the main restaurant which was closed, then walked up to the glass house cafe which was, yep you guessed it, closed! We had to ask someone where we could go to get drinks and food as there were no signs around telling us where was open. We had to ask yet another member of staff who said that we had to walk all the way back up to the main entrance to the cafe there! It's crazy that non of the main cafes were open on the main site.
We got to the cafe to find a very glum looking girl on the till. No smile and no friendly greeting. We sat down and ordered our food and ended up having to wait almost an hour. It wasn't even that busy as our visit was during a weekday. I asked where our food was and the same girl who was on the till didn't apologise and said she'd go and find out! She didn't even come back to tell us how long it was going to be! When the food came out, again, there was no apology for the wait time. For the prices we were hoping that we would get something that was worth it! Clearly not! The food was bog standard and not worth the money at all so make sure you bring your own food if you visit.
On a positive, the castle itself is really fabulous and the exhibitions in each room are very cleverly and clearly set out. There's lots of history and things to read and interact with. However, if you're going to visit, do it in the summer when there are more events happening and when the actors are there. They're the ones who really bring the place to life. The staff always seem really glum and unhelpful so it's a thumbs down for the customer service for sure from me.

We’re disappointed that some aspects of your visit did not meet your expectations. The parking fee is for the whole day and goes towards heritage maintenance, we are currently undergoing restoration on the South Front masonry of the castle. In regards to our Food & Beverage units, I am sorry to hear about your frustration with this. Due to the current circumstances we unfortunately don't have the visitor volume to justify having more than one restaurant open, particularly during a weekday so I apologise that you found this frustrating. Your feedback on the service you received in our Coach House restaurant is appreciated and will be reviewed by one of our team members. I sincerely hope that these aspects didn't detract from your enjoyment of the castle itself.

I’m afraid I just don’t understand why this attraction is so expensive. I paid £165 for two adults and three children and so expected to be wowed by the place. It seemed to be a day of queuing to then spend 20 minutes at best looking around the castle/ramparts due to the sheer volume of people shuffling along behind us. The rooms in the castle are understandably roped off to protect their contents but this then leaves a small area to actually see the room. With the amount of people there, it was impossible to stand for any length of time and enjoy it. This was even when it was 40% quieter than usual (as I was told on the phone when I booked it).
The queues at the snack stalls were ridiculous and the service was painfully slow.
40 ministers just to get into the gift shop!
The cafe in the conservatory was massively overpriced. £4.25 for a cheap sausage roll!
£7 for a kids lunch bag with a plain cheese sandwich, apple, water and popcorn bag.
Our three children can find fun in most things...simple walks, National Trust houses etc, but they were bored out of their minds for most of the day. (Allowed 15 mins in order to get them an ice cream before the bird display started but then missed most of it because of slow service at the snack kiosk. It took half an hour to pick 3 ice creams out of a freezer and pay for them.
I honestly feel that you’d be better off paying £25 or so (as a non member) to go into a National Trust house/grounds and then spending the other money on something else that you know would really please your children.
The dungeon was pretty good and although I paid an extra £50 for this it saved the day.
All in all, the day cost around £200. I never mind spending money when I feel that our children or us have had an amazing time but don’t like feeling ripped off. I know that it costs a lot to upkeep such a beautiful place, but it was disproportionately expensive for what it offered. Queuing, huge walk from car park to castle, excessively busy, overpriced food, £6 to get out of car park, quick whistle stop look around castle and that’s about it.
Definitely won’t be returning. Kids won’t ask to go again either thankfully!!

My wife thought it would be nice to visit Warwick Castle while we staying up in Warwick. She looked on the internet and spotted that if you book online you can get a 30% discount on the tickets, Great I thought lets do it. We tried to book but when we clicked on "buy tickets" the price suddenly went up with out any reason. The original price was £18.00 each then it jumped to £20.00 each at the final check out it became £23.00 each, some considerable amount short of the 30% discount that was promised. I decided to go to the online chat feature to ask what the issue was, I had to wait a few minutes for one of their "wizards" to respond. Eventually wizard Harry came on to the chat but I have to say that he was no more a wizard than I was and had no real interest in assist me with the issue simply answering that he didnt know why it did that sometimes. We brought the tickets at £23.00 each feeling less than happy with the deal but my wife really did want to go. We visited the castle the next day and the attraction itself was very good and we enjoyed our time there but my enjoyment was quickly squashed when I then realised that I needed to pay a further £6.00 before my car would be allowed to leave the car park! I dont mind heritage sites making enough money to enable themselves to stay open for all to enjoy but I do suspect someone is making some profit here and if you are going to do that be bloody transparent about it especially if you want people to continue to support the work you are doing!

When booking on the website for the discounted tickets, it has to be at least 4 days in advance otherwise it will give you the 'on the day' price, which is what may have happened. We would like to apologise that you had this experience with the online chat. Unfortunately, they are not resident to Warwick Castle. As you may be aware, the Castle is privately owned and self-funded. Whilst English Heritage and National Trust receive government support and lottery bursaries for maintenance and rely on a team of volunteers as stewards and assistants, all this has to be paid for out of fees at Warwick. At Warwick Castle, revenue generated from admissions and parking charges is re-invested in the maintenance and renovation of the Castle. In the last year alone we have spent approximately £1.5m on masonry repairs to Guy’s Tower and other walls, redecoration of the Royal Weekend Party rooms and fire compartmentalisation. We hope that this didn't detract from your visit too much.

Myself, my partner and our 9 year old child enjoyed a great day out last week at Warwick Castle. We paid for full admission as well as the Dungeon tour.

Booking was very clear and simple on their website, and although the que was huge when we arrived, we bypassed that due to our pre-booked tickets.

We went round the maze on arrival which was great, and then did the castle dungeons. It lasted only 30 minutes (York and London dungeons are an hour). Apart from a rather rude lady at the start, the actors where brilliant.

Following on from this, we looked round the castle itself. It was superb! Very helpful staff and a very impressive and well looked after building.

Now for the part I didn’t enjoy. The price of food and drinks. There is an ok selection of light refreshments available, but the price is astronomical! Far far too expensive. I would highly recommend for people to bring their own picnic in which there is plenty of places to eat it.

Finally, we went to watch the Falcon display. This was absolutely fantastic! One of the best I’ve seen (second to the one in Knutsford).

A good day had by all. Spoilt by ridiculous beverage prices.

I’ve stayed away from big attractions since COVID, but my daughter had done a project on castles at school and i wanted to Reward her with a day out.

Wow! Just wow!

Our day out was fantastic.
The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful, making us feel safe and offered really useful guidance as we went around.
The shows were great - but the haunted features (Spooked and the Hollows) were so good. I wished we could have come at night when it would all have been lit up.

The Falconers Quest was a stunning show. A great idea that allowed for everyone to enjoy something special whilst keeping a distance. I can’t express how awesome this show was - and that finale!!!! Spectacular!!

Warwick Castle seems to have really focussed on making you feel safe whilst still giving amazing value for money.

I’ve visited a few times in the last 5 years but this was the most memorable.

Amazing work!!

A wonderful place to spend the afternoon or a day when the sun is out. Some incredible views.
Inside the castle you can really appreciate the history and what has come before. From suits of armour is the great hall to tapestries on the walls in the bedrooms.
The added points of bird shows and dungeons add more to the experience.
Do be aware that parking is a flat rate of £6 should you be there an hour or all day.
Temperatures are being checked upon entry and pre booking is a requirement for entry.
Makes a great day out for the family.

I have been looking forward to this experience for many years and I wish it lived up to my expectations. My first disappointment came when we had to pay for parking our car at a cost of £6, my other disappointed came from the over all quality and impression of the interior of the castle, we have visited many castles throughout Britain and have never came away thinking where is our admission fee going. The areas for eating were limited especially with the weather being wet and windy. However the dungeon visit was very good, highly recommend this but small children be aware it could possibly be scary for them.

We’re sorry to hear that you didn’t feel as if you received value for money during your visit to Warwick Castle. We aim to provide a whole day of historic entertainment for people of all ages: though our history team tours where you can learn about the history of the castle, over 300 information boards, interactive displays such as the Kingmaker and the Horrible Histories Maze where children can learn about different aspects of history as they make their way through the maze and much more. Our actors work hard to make the Dungeon experience as believable and enjoyable as possible it is great to hear that you enjoyed it. We appreciate your feedback on you trip and we hope that this didn't detract from your visit too much.

We are a young couple 23-26 and decided to visit Warwick castle, we were shocked at the £6 parking fee on top of the £22 entry?! Surely parking should be included. To start with we were really disappointed, the horrible histories maze was okay (know it’s more for kids) but could’ve done with more interesting props or pictures in it, the facts however were really interesting! The castle grounds had a fair bit of rubbish scattered around which was sad to see and the grass was all mud from what looks like events that occurred earlier in the year (due to there being less on in winter feel tickets should be cheaper as there’s less of an experience looks like there normally is lots more for children to do). The lower section of the castle was interesting but smelt like urine throughout. We were really really impressed by the great hall and surrounding rooms, beautifully decorated and really interesting information. The food was disappointing. We went to the conservatory as it was raining there was no covered outdoor seating so everyone was hoping for a table inside however it was table service only and the food again was really overpriced with a limited selection. The sandwiches were as standard as a Tesco meal deal yet cost £7 for a sandwich and crisps. Can get cheaper at Costa and it’s much nicer food, the staff were rude and we could hear them muttering to each other about other visitors. However the rest of the castle the staff were all friendly and helpful. If there was some sheltered space outside for families especially with children for picnics that would help. We feel the whole place has been over commercialised a bit taking away the simplicity and beauty of the castle however we would still recommend it to others as a good day out as you were there for a good few hours. Just book tickets in advance as cheaper, and take your own food and drinks!

Thank you florenceh687 for your review. We are sad to hear that some aspects of your visit did not meet your expectations. We expect all staff to deliver high levels of customer service at all times, and are disappointed that this was not your experience when visiting us. We are sorry you found the food disappointing.

Warwick Castle is a fantastic place steeped in history, but unfortunately there were a few things of concern. In addition to the cost of the tickets, car parking needs to be paid for at £6 per car, and it’s quite a walk from the car park to the entrance to the castle.

Unfortunately, there are no precautions in place to ensure social distancing at all. We had to queue to get in which isn’t a problem, but it was very busy and difficult to keep distancing from one another due to the barriers - perhaps markings on the floor would encourage visitors to take more care? The same goes for the horrible histories maze. We were looking forward to this, but there are no limitations on how many people can enter the maze at once, meaning we had to queue most of the way round and avoid people coming round. So we gave up and came out again which was disappointing. Again, despite being outside, this is a confined space with no social distancing measures in place. I feel a simple solution would be to allocate time slots to parties to limit how many people enter the maze at once.

The jousting performance was good, however, again there were many crowds of people under the canopies - as you can see from the photo attached, it, like many other parts of the venue, are very much a ‘free for all’.

The falconry display is excellent. Upon arrival we had decided that we weren’t bothered either way if we saw it, but we were really pleased we did, and would highly recommend it.

The dungeons didn’t appear to be open unfortunately, so can’t comment on that and there are a few ‘have a go’ stations dotted around which require an additional fee.

All in all, in ‘normal’ times, it would have been an enjoyable day out, but the lack of Covid control dput a dampener on the day.
