Dungeon FAQs

Is the Castle Dungeon entry included in my ticket?

For obvious reasons the scary fun of The Castle Dungeon is not suitable for everyone. For that reason we have made The Castle Dungeon an optional extra attraction inside Warwick Castle, included on some of our tickets, but not on others. If you change your mind once you are inside the Castle, limited numbers of tickets are available to purchase from the Central Courtyard Ticket Office, subject to availability.

Can I go into the Castle Dungeon at any point during my visit?

Due to the popularity of the attraction and the capacity of the dungeon, all tickets to the Castle Dungeon are timed, which you can book online or on the day. Please note your ticket entry time on arrival and arrive at least 10 minutes before your allotted time at the Castle Dungeon entrance.

The Castle Dungeon is a walk through interactive attraction and lasts for 50 minutes, so please bear this in mind if meeting up with other friends or family throughout the day.

Pssst. Booking your Dungeon slot in advance means you are more likely to get the time you want - it's a little hidden bonus for booking online.

Dungeon Lates

Dungeon Lates

A fortifying dose of after hours scary fun... but only for traitors aged over 18!

It’s ruder, it’s scarier and it’s adultier!

That’s right, it’s Warwick Castle’s Dungeon Lates, but what are they, and why are they Adults Only?

On selected nights throughout the year, The Castle Dungeon will be opening into the darker hours of the night, with new surprises in its shows. Expect more scares, cheekier jokes and even…well, we’ll let you find out for yourself.

With a Welcome Drink on arrival, you and your group will be taken back through Live Shows, but with even more twists and turns than usual. But be quick, these events don’t come round often, and remember, they’re strictly 18+ only!

Tickets are now available for:

  • Friday 5th October
  • Friday 12th October

Tours start from 8pm and lasts 75 minutes.
