UK Vacay: Warwick Castle

We spent a day at Warwick Castle, and it was one of the most enjoyable days for the boys.  Good weather, and a ton of interactive things to do.  Shows, Midieval history, falconry, archery, Knight School... to name a few!  We booked our tickets several weeks in advance, and were able to save 30% on the price of admission by doing so. We spent about 4.5 hours outside of the castle before we finally made it in, and that was just to use the facilities and get a few pics.  It was a pretty important piece of real estate in it's time, but the family couldn't afford to maintain it, and it was sold to Madame Tussaud's a few years ago, and is now managed by the Merlin Entertainments Group (Legoland, Sea Life Aquariums, and other attractions across in 25 countries).   They've done a great job bringing history to life.  If you're in Warwick, GO!  You won't be disappointed.

Usually 4 men would do the job of ratcheting down the Trebuchet. 

HUGE!


At the end of the day, this is a beautiful site!
