"Warwick castle - the waxworks" Warwick Castle Tip by leffe3

Warwick Castle, Warwick: 57 reviews and 106 photos

To be found in the basement cellars of the castle, there's a whole host of reconstructed scenes from the everyday castle life of the 15th and 16th century. And as one would expect, the castle being owned by the same company that owns Madame Tussauds, there's some excellent wax work models used to highlight each scenario. With taped soundscape echoing through the darkened rooms, the light as realistic as possible (within modern day safety regulations!), it's surprisingly realistic (so much so that I jumped out of my skin when one of the wax works spoke to me. It wasn't, it was a guard!). Thus, scenes recreated include a bar/tavern and the kitchens, sewing rooms, the dungeon, kids play room.
