Warwick Castle 1

Warwick Castle overlooking the River Avon, lies in the town of Warwick in Warwickshire.  It is traditionally associated with the earldom of Warwick, one of the oldest in England. The castle today is a popular tourist attraction in England. 

It was everything I had imagined a castle to be. I was able to climb the walls around the castle and its towers.  The castle has a small dungeon, which can be a bit frightening. The wax figures created by Madame Toussaud's are very impressive indeed (some photos of which I'll post tomorrow).  As you walk through the castle, you're struck by the realistic recreations of what life was like for the royals who lived in the castle in the late 19th century.

I visited there way back in 1998 with my daughter. It's a fascinating place to see and I'd go there again!
