Christmas at Warwick Castle

With the festive fun at Warwick Castle, it’s no wonder a day out at the Castle is on most kids’ Christmas wish lists (and their parents’, too!) this year.

From November 25th the Castle will be decked in the finest festive grandeur, with our beloved 20-feet-high Christmas tree gracing the Great Hall.

We are open every day apart from Christmas Day offering yuletide glee aplenty with a feast of events and attractions including our Stories with Santa and a Winter Wedding in The Princess Tower.

*Stories with Santa tickets are subject to availability.
