Make a Knight of your visit to Warwick Castle this Summer with new premium glamping tents housed along the exclusive Avenue of the Kings boardwalk, and Wars of the Roses themed lodges, created in honour of the return of the Castle’s popular arena show.
Available from Saturday 26 May 2018, the Avenue of the Kings tents include a four-poster bed, elegantly finished with a replica stained-glass headboard and featuring modern essentials like power points and a full-length mirror. Commemorating the 950th anniversary of William the Conqueror building the first structure on the Castle’s site – and named after him and other notable British monarchs – the new glamping tents provide enhanced touches for those seeking a royal night’s sleep. These accommodation improvements reflect the increasing popularity of Warwick Castle as an overnight destination rather than simply just a day trip.
The family-friendly glamping tents also feature two single wooden beds for little princes and princesses, as well as an outdoor seating area, perfect for watching the sun set or playing a game of chess whilst seated in your hand-carved wooden throne. Toilet and shower facilities are just a short walk away.
Set by the riverside within the Castle’s extensive grounds, the six new glamping tents sit alongside the comfortable Standard tents (available seasonally) and year-round chalet styled lodges, providing families with ample accommodation choices to ensure a memorable stay, which includes a family two-day ticket for entrance, breakfast and two days car parking.
Heralding the return of last year’s popular debut season for Wars of the Roses Live show, Warwick Castle is also unveiling two themed lodges for fans of the Houses of Lancashire and Yorkshire. The Red and White Lodges – exclusively limited to one for each ‘side’ – are perfect for families; furnished in themed colours reflecting your chosen alliance, suits of armour and swords decorate the walls to inspire budding knights and history fans.
Short breaks at Warwick Castle include evening entertainment such as Have-a-go archery, Knight School, Woodland Wildlife Nature Trail and jester classes, with car parking, a hearty breakfast buffet and two days’ entrance to the Castle included, allowing you to revisit your favourite attractions and explore all corners of the medieval landmark. *Guests may also choose to dine at the evening all-you-can-eat banquet served in the Medieval Dining Hall.
**Stays in a Standard tent start from £149, with overnight breaks from £326 in the luxury Avenue of Kings tents. Lodges start from £129 per night, with limited availability for the exclusive Wars of the Roses Lodges.
Britain’s ultimate castle, a short break at Warwick Castle brings history to life with lively attractions such as The Mighty Trebuchet, Birds of Prey shows and the Castle Dungeon, as well as heritage exhibitions including The Conqueror’s Fortress and the Kingmaker. Summer 2018 also heralds the return of the popular Wars of the Roses Live spectacular; in a custom-build arena, featuring jousting and equestrian artistry, this live performance tells the story of one of Britain’s most fiercely contested battles – said to be the inspiration for Games of Thrones’ Westeros.
