Come on in...

Arrive at The Castle Dungeon at your allocated time and introduce yourself to our resident Jester. They'll prepare you for your gruesome journey through 300 years of Warwick Castle’s darkest history.

Head inside and travel through time with the Monk. They'll take you to the darkest times across Europe... are you sure you're safe in the castle walls?

...Keep your eyes peeled, or the Torturer may prove you're not...

Our dreaded Judge will decide your fate, so stay on their good side or you'll end up in the Execution Room...
