Directions & Parking

We're famous for bringing history vividly to life, so you won't want to be late! Get your day off to a great start and follow our guide to getting to us.

Directions

Standard Parking: The Castle is well signposted, and less than two miles from junction 15 of the M40. Our address is: Warwick Castle, Warwick, Warwickshire, CV34 6AH.

Drop-Off Area: The Stratford Road and overflow car parks are situated on an incline to the main entrance, and it can take between 10-20 minutes to walk from.

As such, there is a Drop-Off* area for those with specific needs. Politely make yourself known to a member of our Parking Team on arrival, who can direct you. This option is especially useful for those visiting with very young children or mobility requirements.  

Parking Charges: Further details on our parking charges can be found below.

Car Park Locations: Many of our guests tell us our car parks are too far away from our main entrance. We agree! However, the castle and grounds are protected as a Scheduled Ancient Monument and are Grade I listed. We're committed to conservation and want to maintain the castle and grounds as they were originally designed. Further information is available in the sections below. 

*Please note, our Drop-Off Area is also used as a coach turning bay. Please ensure you use this option when advised by our Parking Team and as a drop-off or pick-up point only.

Warwick Railway Station is approximately one mile from the Castle. A direct service into London Marylebone (1 hour 45 minutes) or Birmingham Snow Hill is available. For information visit www.westmidlandsrailway.co.uk or www.chilternrailways.co.uk

Parking & Charges

We’d love to offer free parking, but unfortunately our proximity to the town centre and train station means that spaces would otherwise be taken and would not be available to our visitors.
We're passionate about conservation and a proportion of all our funds is committed to protecting and preserving the castle and grounds for future generations to enjoy. You can find more information about our conservation projects here
