Warwick Castle

UK»England»Warwickshire»Warwick»Warwick Castle

Warwick Castle has witnessed some of the darkest, bloodiest and most frightening times in history. Its history stretches back almost 1,100 years. It was in 914AD that Ethelfleda, daughter of Alfred the Great, ordered the building of a 'burh' or an earthen rampart to protect the small hill top settlement of Warwick from Danish invaders. Whatever your interest there is certain to be something here to keep every body happy from the macabre dungeons to the victorian rose gardens and keeps and towers inbetween.

Fulke Greville is said to haunt the Watergate Tower, despite being murdered in Holborn; the Watergate Tower is also known as the Ghost Tower and for most of the year it is home to "Warwick Ghosts Alive", a short, live-action show telling the story of Fulke Greville's murder. The show uses live actors, sound, lighting and visual effects.
