Planning Your Visit
Welcoming You Back Safely
Following the latest Government guidance, we can't wait to welcome you back to Warwick Castle and Knight’s Village from 4th July! Since March, our team have been working really hard to ensure the Castle can reopen safely and operates in line with the enhanced safety measures set out by the UK Government.
We'll be reopening shows, attractions and Knight's Village accommodation. You’ll be able to climb the Towers and Ramparts, enter the magnificent Great Hall and experience the UK’s biggest Bird of Prey show, The Falconer’s Quest!
We are looking forward to welcoming you back, with the health and safety of our guests and staff being our number one priority. We have therefore introduced a number of additional hygiene and safety measures which you might see in place when you visit.
Warwick Castle spans over 64 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, which guests have been enjoying since they opened to visitors on 6th June. There is plenty of green space for visitors to enjoy in their household groups whilst maintaining a safe distance from other families. You can find out more about the changes we're implementing below.
To ensure we keep everyone safe, tickets will need to be pre-booked online here.
For now, scroll down to see what to expect on your visit. We can’t wait to see you soon!
Enjoy a safe visit with us
The health and safety of our guests and staff is always our number one priority and we have therefore introduced a number of additional hygiene and safety measures which you’ll see in place when you visit.
As part of the team at Merlin Entertainments, we’ve been taking advice from colleagues across the globe, especially those who have now reopened, on how best to reopen, in line with new safety requirements.
Our expert teams have created a comprehensive plan: from enhanced cleaning regimes, one way systems and social distancing measures and markers, we’ll be doing everything we can to make sure that you have a magical and safe visit.

I just want to say what a fantastic job you guys did yesterday. I was a little nervous taking the girls out, but all of the staff were amazing!
Even though I had warned the girls their temperature was going to be taken my youngest got a bit shy, the man immediately picked up on this and put her at ease.
Also incredibly thankful for the first coffee that I didn't have to make since lockdown!
