Bursting to the towers with tales of treachery and torture, passion and power and above all fascinating people, times and events, Warwick Castle is so much more than simply a castle. Experience preparations for battle, feel the weight of a sword and get a soldier's eye view from beneath a battle helmet, see lavishly decorated State Rooms, watch as a household prepares for a Victorian party and discover how electricity was generated over 100 years ago to light up the castle.
Explore the 60 acres of landscaped grounds and gardens, which include the beautiful Peacock Garden and Conservatory, the Victorian Rose Garden and Pageant Field.
Throughout the year there is a fantastic programme of events including birds of prey, jousting and the world's largest trebuchet in action.
Sir Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace in 1874 and a permanent exhibition about him is located next to his birth room - both are included in the Palace tour. He is buried in a simple grave in the nearby church at Bladon. A separate exhibition, 'Churchill's' Destiny - The Story of Two Great war Leaders', celebrates the achievements of Winston and his great hero and ancestor, John Churchill.
A state-of-the-art visitor experience is open in the heart of the Palace called 'Blenheim Palace: the Untold Story'

Where you can immerse yourself in a thousand years of jaw-dropping history come rain or shine. Where ancient myths and spell-binding tales will set your imagination alight and your hair on end. Where princesses are pampered and maidens are wooed. Experience the heat of battle at such close quarters youll almost smell the fear, as winners become true heroes and losers are confined to dark, dank dungeons to be forgotten for eternity. It could only be Warwick Castle.
