16-04-2013 : A CANAL BOAT HOLIDAY FUN DAY AT WARWICK CASTLE

For a day full of family fun visit Warwick Castle whilst on your Canal Boat Holiday exploring the Grand Union Canal.

If you think that history can be a bit stuffy then clearly you have not been to Warwick Castle.

Warwick Castle is fun fun fun from medieval mayhem in the form of the Horrible Histories Foul Fayres to the Vikings that meet you at the castle gates.

Champion for the Warwick Warriors, who give a knightly, or should that be daily, display of chopping a wooden pole with their swords.

Go back in time to 1898 and be a guest at a house party hosted by Daisy, Countess of Warwick meet Daisy and her friends preparing for their party.

Take a tour of the castle from the main hall of the fortress, which dates from 1086 and the reign of William the Conqueror up to the ramparts for a great view of the castle and the River Avon.

Warwick Castle was founded almost 1,100 years when in 914AD 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.

In 1705 the world famous gardener Lancelot Capability Brown was commissioned to landscape the gardens.

The town of Warwick itself is worth an explore and is set amidst historic building where there are a vast array of antique and second hand bookshops.

Warwick has a great variety of cafes, restaurants and other eateries.
