A day at Warwick castle 

As a family with teens and a toddler we often struggle to find days out a struggle to find days out that all the children can enjoy because obviously they have different tastes.

We recently visited Warwick castle hoping that it might have something for everyone and I’m happy to say it was everything we hoped for.


They have so much on that all ages can find something they like.

As soon as we walked in the gates there was something to do. They had a horrible histories section where you could splat the rats and have a look around at some disgusting history. The teens thought this part was a bit boring and they were too embarrassed to splat the rats and Harry was too young. But we did get some funny photo’s.

As we walked around a little more they had archery on which the teen boy wanted to do. It was £3 for 6 arrows and £5 for 12. He did really well.

Next up was a walk around the castle. Again the teens were a bit bored and Harry was scared but I loved this part. History is my favourite subject.

It was then time for lunch and we bought our own food. I’m glad we did because where they do have a huge selection of food, it is a bit expensive. We were there so long that later on in the evening we had hotdogs because we were hungry again. They tasted really nice but it did cost us quite alot. We also bought our own drinks because the drinks were high priced too.

Next up was watching the Jousting which everyone enjoyed (well Harry did shout a few times “no fighting” hehe) and about an hour after was a Horrible Histories Show. This bit I was super excited about. I don’t care what age it’s for but I love horrible histories and I am so glad that this did not disappoint. It was so entertaining. And to our amazement, even Harry sat through the whole 30 mins show watching it.

We also took a look around the birds of prey and watched some of them fly. It was so amazing watching them and again all of us enjoyed this part. We had icecreams, more walking, had fun in the park and the two teens walked up to the tower. Harry was too tired to do it and I didn’t fancy it being pregnant.

It was a great day out and I would recommend it to anyone who was thinking of going. It’s a great day for children and adults of all ages. We ended our day by having a photo (well two of us) with some horrible histories characters that were singing and talking to us about lots of horrible history.

  1. It looks like a lovely day out and I had never considered the impact of trying to entertain children of different ages before, it must be a challenge!

  2. Wow looks like such fun! I’m a bit of a history geek too and cannot wait until we can do day trips like this – in fact I think my nearly 4 year old would love it now. One for the list!
