With action-packed days and unmissable evening events on selected dates, you’ll need to stay overnight to experience it all.
Choose Your Side
This summer, the ultimate jousting experience returns to Warwick Castle. Wars of the Roses Live! will unleash the action of the historic battles of the fifteenth century with you at the centre. Feel the past come to life in front of your eyes as you witness thrilling battles, daring stunts, and incredible jousting. Horses will charge, swords will clash, and the crowd will roar. It’s up to you to choose your side… Red rose or white rose?
Sleepover at the Castle this Summer
We’re full to the turrets with things to see and do this summer, so you’ll need more than one day to experience it all.
Our medieval-themed Knight’s Village set within the castle grounds offers a unique experience that you will never forget. Stay in a woodland lodge which includes your very own private terrace, or sleep under the summer stars in a majestic glamping tent.
As part of your short break package, you’ll enjoy one-day castle entry, free breakfast, themed evening entertainment and free car parking.
