A stunning example of a traditional English Castle, Warwick Castle was originally built by William the Conqueror to protect the small hilltop settlement of Warwick. Magnificently restored, a trip to this castle gives you the chance to be involved in the preparations for a mediaeval battle before walking through the elegance of an aristocratic Victorian party. Fantastic views of the grounds, designed by Capability Brown, and the town of Warwick can be seen from the ramparts of the castle.
