Can you stomach it?
The Castle Dungeon is a hauntingly thrilling attraction that is not for the faint-hearted. Prepare to be transported back in time to the days of the putrefying Plague as you see, hear, feel, and (ahem!) smell the castle’s resident creatures and succumb to over 300 years of Warwick’s most gruesome and grizzly history!
Upon your arrival, you’ll be greeted by the resident Castle Jester who’ll get you squealing with both laughter and fear before you delve deeper into The Castle Dungeon where plague, persecution and punishment await you!
Feeling brave? Meet some of the gruesome characters you’ll meet along your way…
THE PLAGUE DOCTOR
Feeling a little ropey? Meet the Castle’s resident ‘Plague Doctor’ or so they conveniently call themselves that…(believe what you will!)
Able to smell out rotting meat a mile off within your group, this ‘Doctor’ will sniff you out and test out all their learning on symptoms, causes and cures of the wretched Plague.
Warning! Strong stomachs are a must.
The Castle Dungeon’s Torture Chamber, or better known as the home of incarceration, humiliation, and pain… enter at your own peril!
Come face to face with The Torturer, an expect in their craft, as they take great pleasure in demonstrating on unwilling peasants, like you, their favourite tools of the trade, ranging from The Hook to the Chappy Chopper – we’ll leave this on to your imagination.
Bravely enter the court belonging to Guy de Beauchamp, 10th Earl of Warwick, and meet his trust Constable, ready and eagerly waiting to pass judgment on all you peasants for your heinous crimes.
Will you be found GUILTY AS CHARGED!? (The answer is – yes.) Beware, no sinners will escape unscathed by the Judge’s ability sniff out the fear and guilt in you.
But that’s not all.

We booked the dungeon experience and I must say Wow!! For the price it is a must. Definitely not for the faint hearted! Loved it and so did my son.
The experience in the dungeon was well paying the extra for fun and terrifying.
The dungeons are also a must! It is dark in there but the actors are brilliant. It's funny, informative and scary
Would highly recommend the dungeon experience. Fun and terrifyingly exciting!
