Warwick in spring...

by psychocy

Hello,

I plan on visiting Warwick between April/May of this year. It will be my very first time going abroad, and I will be backpacking (I love hiking/camping). Here is my question...

1) I hope to visit Warwick Castle to do either the Kingmaker's Feast or the Highwayman's Supper. Has anyone been to either of these and do they recommend the,? Is one better than the other? How is the castle itself?

2) What other things are there to do in Warwick? Cheap places to camp/stay? How is the atmosphere there during that season?

Thanks ahead of time,
Ken

I didn't attend the kingmaker's feast but I heard great things about it. I did visit Warwick castle and it was beyond fantastic. I spent all day there and cannot reccomend it enough.

The tour through the manor portion is amazing with intimate access to all of the private rooms with authentic paintings. There are armor suits and battle weapons decorating the walls.... You can now go into the dungeon as well which is now a cafeteria.... There are peacock gardens full of yes..... peacocks.

The area around Warwick is very beautiful and is right on a river where you can rent rowboats I believe. If you have a train pass you are so close to countless places to visit and sights to see. You will be in the heart of England where everything is a very short train station away.

Great Britian has an official website... Sorry I don't remember it but it can easily be found with an easy search.

Good Luck
You are going to have a great time.

Hi Ken

I would recommend the Kingmaker Feast, it's a medieval theme, more in keeping with a medieval castle

Also the Kingmaker is held in the undercroft restaurant (below the great hall in the castle), The Highwayman's Supper is in the stables restaurant (above the old stables) outside of the castle

There's lots more to do and see, have a look at my Warwick pages

My Warwick VT page is on http://www.virtualtourist.com/m/666cd/4a16e/

Also a good web-page on Warwick is

As for camping, Warwick isn't well catered for, will you have any transport or will you be using the bus & train?

There's a Youth Hostel five miles out of Warwick, Camping ten miles out of Warwick, both of which are off the beaten path (transport needed)

Maybe a good idea to base yourself in Stratford Upon Avon, twelve miles down the road from Warwick, there's good camping and a train (and bus) between the two towns, lots to see and do in Stratford too, it's more geared up for tourism

Just to look at your other questions

The castle is truly superb!

Warwick is not the most atmospheric town, it's just a small place of about 29,000 people, it doesn't buzz with excitement but you'll enjoy it

Best wishes

Andy

I agree with Andy, you can't go to Warwick without going to Stratford Upon Avon, they're pretty close together.

Travel Tips for Warwick

Timber-framed houses, aren't they cute?

by evaanna

Warwick boasts many beautiful examples of half-timbered houses, dating back to Tudor times. You can come across them in the main streets as well as in some narrow passages, like the one leading to the Church of St Mary. Their beautiful, sometimes intricate and curving, designs
delight the eye. The wonderfully ornate building in the picture can be found in the square at the back of the museum, but I haven't been able to trace its history.
Some of those buildings may be crooked with age, but this only shows that they have not been tampered with, which adds to their irresisible charm.

What to bring with?

by Jenniflower

Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling. Whether snowy/wet/sunny/warm or cold weather, layer your clothing.
Wear thermal underwear (these are easily bought at the local clothing shops), with warm leggings and a top under a toasty jacket for the cold. I have my trusty grey duffle coat, plus a white snow jacket for this type of weather, and they are a godsend!
Wear flat shoes that have a good grip, as when it is snowing, and afterwards, when it is sludge, it's really difficult to walk and keep your balance!
Always remember to bring a cap/hat that covers your head and neck for when it gets hot, as well as sunglasses. Sunscreen (Factor 35 is the minimum factor I use, no matter what the weather is), headache tablets and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, cotton wool, germolene etc. Your camera, with charger, and a EUROPEAN plug extension. Have a map of the area handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars

The Saxon Mill at Guys Cliffe

by andywing

Just out of walking distance from the town, but a three pound taxi ride is worth it (go for lunch).

If you're driving, head towards Leamington and turn left at the Crown & Castle onto the Coventry Road, past the railway station, carry on over an island and as you hit the countryside it's on the right.

The Saxon Mill has just been tastefully refitted and is now more of a classy restaurant with a bar but even so the setting is stunning.

Outside of Warwick on the banks of the Avon with the derelict Guys Cliffe House over the river this is a beautiful place. http://www.guyscliffehouse.co.uk/

There has been a water-mill here from Saxon times and the pub is in the old mill.

Warwick Castle

by roamer61

Warwick Castle is one of the largest castle in Britain and one of the largest in Europe. Like many military structures found throughout the country, it was enlarged and modified over the centuries. In fact, the Norman built defenses here back in the 11th century. Parts of that earliest fortification can be seen far to the right in the picture.

The part of the castle seen in the photo is where the Great Hall is. There, in the 14th Century when it was first built, elaborate meals were served for the Lord and his guests. Though a fire ravaged much of the interior in 1871, it was meticulously restored and today, is a must see for any visitors to the area.

Enjoy the views

by HispanicYob

Once you climb up Guy's Tower here at Warwick Castle, you can get some great views of the town below. It's really awesome to see all the old-fashioned Tutor buildings and narrow little streets. If you can manage the long flights of stairs up and down these turrets, you can sit back for a bit and soak up the sun (if there is any).
