Troubadours serenade the visitors as you approach the Great Hall. Inside there is an exhibition called "the Royal Weekend Party."
In 1898, Daisy, Countess of Warwick hosted a weekend party at which the principle guest was the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII.

Once you enter the Royal Weekend Party, you'll step back in time to one of the most lavish and extravagant periods at Warwick Castle. Here you'll meet the beautiful Daisy, Countess of Warwick and her friends preparing for their weekend party.

Housed in the Private Apartments, originally built in the 17th century, and using Tussaud's wax portraits, the Royal Weekend Party brings to life the secrets of a Victorian household and all its important guests.


Most of the furnishings and fittings are those that were actually here in 1898, and photographs taken at the time mean that it has been possible to put every chair, table, bed and book in exactly the place it occupied exactly 100 years ago
