Great Hall and State Rooms: These magnificent rooms are elegantly decorated for a truly festive atmosphere, with roaring fires and festive decorations, including a 25ft Christmas tree.

The Winter Bird Show: Watch majestic birds of prey as they soar through the winter skies, demonstrating their power and prowess in this breathtaking Courtyard show.

The Duelling Gents: Observe a dazzling display of authentic Georgian Swordsmanship, performed by Warwick Castle’s finest swordsmen.

Shakespeare’s Secret Tour: A journey of discovery into the secrets of Britain’s most famous writer; could he really have been the owner of Warwick Castle?
