This self-guided podcast will take you through the wonderful town of Warwick!
Where to go
Situated on the River Avon, Warwick is a market town steeped in history and heritage. Uncover its medieval past, admire the architectural gems, explore the lush parks and visit its famous castle, Warwick Castle. Developed from a wooden fort by William the Conqueror during 1068, it is now the town's most famous tourist attraction. Visitors can tour the staterooms, the Great Hall, the Castle Dungeon and explore the beautiful gardens. St Mary’s Church situated in the town centre is also a must-see historical landmark. Dominating the town’s skyline, climb the 134 steps to the top of the tower for an unrivalled view of the quaint town.
For nature lovers, there are many lush parks and gardens in Warwick to explore. Head to the Victorian Hill Close Gardens, which were set up in the 19th century to be used by tradesmen who didn’t have access to a garden. St Nicholas Park is another great choice for those with kids. With children play areas, sports facilities, mini golf, picnic areas and boat rides, it’s a great place to spend the day.
