About Warwick Castle

Warwick Castle has a long history as part of the English royal landscape as it was first built by William the Conqueror in 1068. Originally built as a wooden motte-and-bailey fort, it was fortified to become the stone castle that we see today in the 12th century – although it has gone through several lives and aesthetic changes in the meantime! Most recently, whilst owned by the Greville family, it was converted into a country house. This castle really has seen a vast expanse of history and has felt its own changes during that period. It is this history that is celebrated and showcased at the castle museum today.

Although the castle has been used as a fort and stronghold since its construction in the 11th century, the tourism that the castle attracts to it in the 21st century is not new. Did you know, that Queen Victoria visited the castle herself in 1858? If it’s good enough for Queen Vic, it’s good enough for us! Now that it sees thousands of visitors each year, it is carefully maintained and it’s upkeep is conscientiously managed to ensure that this historic house can be visited by tourists for many generations to come.
