    The Great Hall in Warwick Castle

    by GinGinCoo Written Feb 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great Hall of Warwick

    The Hall is the largest room in the castle and throughout history has been its heart. The hall as it stands today, was first constructed in the 14th century. It was rebuilt in the 17th century and then restored in 1871 after it had been badly damaged by a fire which swept thru part of the castle.

    The Dungeon in Warwick Castle

    by GinGinCoo Written Feb 27, 2004

    The dungeon

    Built in the 14th century is the dungeon. Leading from a hatch in the ground at the base of Caesar's Tower, a single flight of steps provided the way into, and the only way out of the castle's miserable dungeon.

    Armor demonstration at Warwick Castle

    by kathycollins Written Aug 11, 2003
    Armor

    I was surprised by the flexibility demonstrated by the combatants in armor. I've seen plate armor before, but never seen it worn.

    Interior of Warwick Castle

    by btex Written Sep 25, 2002

    The interior of Warwick Castle. The castle is made up of different sections which can be explored by visitors; they include: the mound, the ramparts walk, many towers, a chapel, a dungeon, a torture chamber, an armoury, and more. One of the towers is supposed to be haunted - the ghost tower. I didn't see any ghosts. They had some cheap special effects in the ghost-room...not scary.

    Warwick Castle is one of the best castles that I've been to. The first version of the castle came about in the year 914. There are many areas of the castle to explore as well as gardens, an island, and the Avon.
    Admission prices depend on the time of year that you visit. Castle is open every day (except Christmas Day), 10am - 6pm April to September, 10am - 5pm October to March. Last admission half an hour before closing.

    Warwick Castle-Ramparts arrow slits

    Arrow slits

    Along the ramparts you will see these cross shaped symbols, these are arrow loops or arrow slits that allowed defenders of the castle to fire their arrows under cover.

    Warwick Castle

    Warwick Castle

    A mideval castle with a museum of dungeon and torture, and re-enactments. The re-enactments look to be real fun for the kids. The castle is clearly visible on a hill from the train station.

    Even without the otherworldy B&W effects, this WARWICK CASTLE reeks of cool. Sorry to overuse that word, but it is true.
