5 Reasons to Visit Warwick Castle

As a family we love days out so this year we decided to buy a Merlin Passes, we are lucky enough to live reasonably close to a few attractions (Legoland Windsor, Chessington, London Aquarium, London Eye and London Dungeons) so will make the most of the passes. We recently met up with family in Warwickshire so decided to take the opportunity to visit Warwick Castle, we had a great day out, plenty to do and see, here's 5 reasons why I think you should visit Warwick Castle for a family day out. 

1. The Castle - Obvs! Warwick Castle itself is mesmerising, its so grand. You really get a sense of history and I don't know if its because I'm obsessed with Game of Throne (if you haven't been watching, you must!) but there was an air of magic there, I half expected a dragon to fly above our heads!

2. Fun for the Whole Family - There is something for everyone, Violet was interested in the history and watching the shows while Tiger really enjoyed exploring the castle, charging around pretending to be a knight and Beaux just loved the vast space to run around, he was pretty impressed with the Peacocks that roamed around the grounds too. Myself and The Mister are just happy when the kids are content with plenty to do meaning we can relax and enjoy it too.

3. The Shows and Entertainment - From the Trebuchet Fireball Spectacular to the Bowman show, all of the shows were all so grand, with the actors remaining in character throughout. Our favorite show was the Birds of Prey, there was something so surreal about the eagles landing on the edge of the castle.

4. The Views - Once you've climbed the cobbled stairs, which is not that easy whilst carrying a heavy toddler...so The Mister said, but well worth it, especially on a clear day you can see for miles.

5. The Adventure Playground - It felt like something straight from the Hobbit movie. The kids loved climbing through tunnels like little moles and sliding down slides. It was a great way to tire them out for the journey home.

We had a great time at Warwick Castle but we arrived late and only managed to see half, we missed some shows and a visit to the dungeons so will visit again.
