Warwick is a lovely historic town not far from Coventry, best-known for the magnificent castle with its numerous attractions and crowds of tourists. Whole coachloads of them arrive there, go round the castle and leave, ignoring all the other places of interest. That's what I did too when I went there for the first time in 1995. The castle was so great I couldn't tear myself away from it and spent the whole day in its grounds. This year though I decided to do the opposite - ignore the castle and explore the town. I had not had a camera there all those years ago so will only show you the castle as viewed from the gate - I wasn't ready to spend 15.95 (now as much as 17.95) pounds just to take some pictures. For more pictures visit their website or the pages of other VT members.

    Lovely page Ewa! Interesting reading about how people died in the old days, and seeing the beautiful Tombs. Like you, I can't get enough of the half timbered houses.

    I would love visiting Warwick Castle. And the town has such beautiful half-timbered houses too.

    From the half timbered houses to the Warwich Castle, I enjoyed all the history of this incredible area. I especially enjoyed your descriptions of the Collegiate Church, WWI Memorial, and Market Place. Honest, interesting, and beautiful.

    I used to go to school in Warwick, so know the places by sight....but being a "local", I haven't been to half of the places you describe! Glad you enjoyed it ;@P

    Your page brings back lots of memories. I also couldn't see or hear any ghost.

    Warwick looks like a very interesting place to visit while in England! You have done amazing research to lay out the historical story of this ancient city! We have not yet been this far north, but it is on the list!
