Embrace the Outdoors

Open every day apart from Christmas Day, Warwick Castle brings history to life with its attractions, including Time Tower, The Castle Dungeon* (over-10s only, it’s that scary!) and a whole host of characters from history throughout the year!

Throw a Summer Party

Go for a Picnic
For a relaxing family day out slow things down and enjoy the beauty which nature provides. Grab a blanket, hamper or cool bag, and head out to your nearest park, lake or other favourite natural spot for an afternoon of activities and good times.
Once there, your options are limitless. Coordinate a day of fun games for the kids, fly a kite or take an invigorating hike through the woods. Or if relaxation calls your name, bring a book and just soak up the view.

Set up Camp
Camping offers the perfect opportunity to re-connect with friends and family, all the while enjoying the warm weather. Whether you’re roasting marshmallows over the campfire, telling spooky stories or having a sing along; camping creates memories that last a lifetime. Utilize the natural splendour of your surroundings by having your kids capture what they find in a nature journal or even create a pressing, both guaranteed to spark conversation and fun well after the trip is over.

Cook up Fun
Cool off with recipes almost as fun to make as they are to enjoy! Homemade lemonade and juice, ice cream treats and ice lollies will refresh your taste buds and spirits, inside or out. For a more savoury spin on things, try fresh salads or cucumber pizza. They may become more than just a summertime treat!

Ambi Pur 3volution banishes unwanted odours!


Within minutes Ambi Pur 3volution's scent makes its way round the whole of my house, banishing the doggy pong! I was slightly worried as most air freshners / candles/ oil burners we have tried leave me with a headache , but this is so subtle as well as doing a great job. Even my mum, who always comments about the smell of 'dog' , has said how nice our house is smelling!
