Heathrow to Warwick

by Spepler

Hopefully someone has done this trip and can advise a first-time visitor! I'm assuming the Heathrow Express connects somehow with trains that will take you out of the city and, in particular, to Warwick. Does anyone know which train lines travel to Warwick (I'll check the internet for their schedules). Also, is there any way of getting to Warwick without coming into London first? Time is of the essence in getting to Warwick, so Iappreciate any help offered!

Hi,
No need to take the Heathrow Express to London - you can travel from Heathrow to Warwick via Reading. It takes about 2.5 hours. Have a look at http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/planmyjourney to plan your journey.

That would be a rather expensive way to get to Warwick!

The Heathrow Express takes you to Paddington station, and some trains to Warwick leave from Paddington. They will invariably stop at Reading on the way, so it would be much cheaper to catch the FlightLine bus to Reading station and travel from there.

Other Warwick trains leave from Marylebone station (which has the distinction of being easily London's nicest rail terminus), which is two tube stops from Paddington. However, you can still save yourself the pricey trip into central London by going to Reading, because even if you don't connect with a direct Warwick train you can catch one of the fairly frequent trains to Banbury or Leaminton, and pick up the train from Marylebone there.

By rail it will cost you 31.70 to go direct from Heathrow to Warwick unless you book in advance or own a railcard. If you go via london, you can add another 20 quid to the journey for the express. I had a look a quick at National Express and I can't find any direct bus to warwick. You sure there is one Barnard?

Sorry, have seen that one now. It takes 4.5 hours though, so train is probably best option for this person.

Travel Tips for Warwick

Torture

by Dabs

What would a trip to a medieval castle be without putting my husband in some instrument of torture? He really is a good sport about these things, especially since he knows I'll post the photos.

In August 2008 I had a couple of new torturees, my nephew Tommy and niece Rachel who gladly pose for silly photos, David is off the hook when I travel with these two!

horse racing

by ligaya

Interesting sport, was my first time to watch a horse racing and i really love it.

Lying just a few hundred yards from Warwick Castle, Warwick Racecourse retains its historic charm and character. The racecourse is one of the oldest in the country, with racing having taken place here since the 1740's, this is a course rich in tradition and heritage.

Warwick races 12 months of the year with 23 fixtures under both codes of Flat and Jumps. The most valuable race run at Warwick is The £75,000 added Tote Classic Chase a race over 3 miles and 5 furlongs run on the second Saturday each January. The other main jumps feature is the Kingmaker Novices Chase Day, Festival trials meeting that takes place in February and provides excellent clues for the forthcoming Cheltenham and Aintree festivals

The Flat highlight takes place over the midsummer weekend in June, the main race is The Listed Eternal Stakes with over £30,000 in prize money.
With 14 of Warwick's fixtures falling on weekends, bank holidays and evenings there are some great days and nights out to be had whether it be through business or with family or friends. you dont need to spend lots of money if you dont, you still can go and watch the race.. you might be interested since it is lots of fun, you can bring chairs of your own and bring some picnic foods to eat and just enjoy while watching.

There is ample free parking available on site in the centre of the course with Annual Members & Hospitality Clients receiving priority parking. Owners & Trainers have a designated car park next to the Paddock Entrance.click here to use the AA Route Planner

Norman Crypt

by leics

If you visit the Collegiate Church of St Mary, do go down into the crypt where you can see the original Norman arches and barrel-vaulting. Then remember how old they are (built 1123) and be amazed at the skill and sheer vision involved in building any of our great Norman churches and cathedrals.

Chains of Torture

by GinGinCoo

For a really serious offense a man might be hung alive in chains near the place of the crime until his body entirely rotted away. It is said that many a strong man, who had stood fearless when sentenced to death, broke down completely when measured for his chains.

Wellesbourne watermill

by samprice11

Nice location for a half day out. Close to Warwick and Straford Upon Avon. On the B4086 just south on Wellesbourne. Nicely restored watermill with demonstrations every hour, on the hour. Narrow and steep staircases in the mill itself so a bit restricting for the old, disabled or families with babies. Also, has some coracles for demonstation on the pond and you can have a go at it yourself. Open from 10-5 during the summer (not sure out of season.)

Admission costs:
Adults £4.50
Senior Citizens £3.50
Children (5-16) £3.00
Family £12.00 (2 x Adults and 2 x children under 16)

Good cafe in a resored barn that serves various home made cakes made from the flour ground from the mill. Also, small gift shop on site.
