Endure the bad ol' days...

Our resident Jester will prepare you for your journey through 300 years of Warwick Castle’s darkest history. The Monk takes you to the times of the plague spreading across Europe bringing death and destruction… are you safe in the Castle Walls? Don't worry, our plague doctor will help you in that crisis.


Don't go misbehaving...

Make sure you don't misbehave down there, or the torturer will be having you! Our dreaded judge can decide your fate, might want to stay on their good side or you'll end up in the execution room... Before you go, you'll learn all about the tale of the Cursed Castle - do you think you can handle it?
