The trip to the old city of Warwick was quite a last minute one. It was the last day for me at J’s place in Leamington Spa, and the day was so good that it would be a waste not to spend outside! We were looking through Lonely Planet’s England guidebook when she read about the surrounding areas and she came upon Warwick. That was when she remembered that she had a Kellogg’s coupon to Warwick Castle.
Tip: Do look out for special promotions on cereal boxes and such. You may just be in time for a good deal. We managed to save on the price of one ticket, which was really great! However, this coupon was for general admission. There is an extra admission to the Dungeons (£9), which we paid for when we were already in the castle. We could not decide earlier whether we had the time to visit the Dungeons as it was already 2-odd in the afternoon when we got there. But we did go for it, which I really highly recommend. However, do note that it can be quite scary in there.
If you have gone to the Dungeons tour in London, you will have an idea about the Warwick one. 😉
There are lots to see and do at Warwick Castle and the surrounding city. Having afternoon tea there is a good idea, especially with the sun shining. Do check out the beautiful rose garden when exiting the castle grounds. I fell in love with English roses all over again…
