Rainy Day Promise

If you purchased your tickets in advance of your visit, but poor weather impacted your experience on the day, you could return for a second day free.*

We're open every day (except Christmas Day) come rain or shine, so you can experience all seasons!

  • As Warwick Castle and Knight's Village is predominantly outdoors, we recommend that you come prepared for the weather. 
  • Please check the weather forecast before your visit and wear appropriate clothing and footwear.
  • If the weather does catch you by surprise, you can purchase sun cream, ponchos and umbrellas in our gift shops.
  • During the summer, a lightweight picnic blanket comes in handy to find your own shady spot or to watch our shows when seating is limited. 
  • During the winter, wearing lots of layers is useful as you move between any outdoor and indoor areas.
