Each year we open our gates to students of all ages. With dozens of educational attractions, tours, workshops and shows, a day spent with us is like no other! Our year–round programme is perfectly crafted for early years, primary, secondary and higher education students. That’s what makes us proud to be one of the best historic school trip destinations in the UK.
We’re ideally located at the heart of the country – just off Junction 15 of the M40, with regular train and bus connections into Warwick. Coach and mini-bus parking is free for all our school groups.
Our prices include; entrance to the castle, grounds and gardens, access to our daily attractions and shows, coach parking, Teacher planning tickets, resources, risk assessments and sample itineraries.
We’re open 364 days a year (only closing on Christmas Day) from 10am - so you can plan your day in line with your syllabus and learning objectives.
If you simply want the day at your own pace, then book or reserve your tickets and pencil-in all of our free attractions and shows. Our unique Education Programme means you can pick-and-choose which ones are perfect for your group. Add an educational workshop or tour to your entry tickets from an extra £3 per student.
Every year we welcome thousands of students of all ages from all over the world. We specialise in 1,100 years of history, but have Tourism, Business and Marketing topics, plus reward trips covered too.
We’re busy behind-the-scenes making sure your day runs as smoothly as possible, but be rest assured that on the day you’ll be met by one of our dedicated Education Team who are on hand to help.
Organising your school trip couldn’t be easier. If you want to pay upfront, simply make a booking using the link below. If you need time to collect payments and parental consent then make a reservation. That confirms your visit until we require payment (at least 10 days before you arrive).
We know that every student is different. If there’s something we can do to accommodate any of your groups' individual needs then get in touch with our Schools Officer. You’ll find their details at the back of our Education Guide.
Full to the turrets with things to do, it’s no surprise that some of our school groups want to stay for more than just a day. Overnight stays start at just £39.75* per student and come with a choice of our medieval themed glamping tents, woodland lodges or a traditional sleepover in our Georgian Coach House.
