Some say Warwick castle is a bit 'touristy' and expensive (I think it was 14pound) - I agree, but it is still so worth it. The castle walls are just amazinly restored and preserved, and Madame Tussards has done some figures for inside the house to represent certain historical figures. That is very interesting.
The town of Warwickshire is also really interesting to walk around. The buildings are very varied and are beautiful. Many remnants of the castle can be seen through out the town still. Warwick has lots of great antique shops and good places to eat, parking isnt too much of a nightmare either.
Not in Warwickshire, per se. But fairly nearby. If you go ever find yourself going thruogh the Cotswolds please do yourself a favor and go through the village of Broadway. You may enter by descending "Fish Hill" Which I could not stop thinking of as "Fish Kill Hill" - but perhaps that was my friend's driving! he he he. Then you'll go by Broadway Tower. Which is definatly worth a stop. I didnt, but when I got home and looked it up I wished I did. Then you'll descend into the village. The buildings are a patina of warm cotswold stone, covered with years of ivy growth. The sidewalks are wide for strolling and there are many nice shops.
A really great market town. It has lots of great pubs and shops, and lots of Cotswold character. You can take the train from here to get to lots of other places in the Cotswolds.
- In a nutshell:Goooooorrrgeous.
Here's a picture of the beautiful graveyard. I know it's weird, but I like looking at stuff like this while away. more travel advice
