Whether you visit Warwick Castle individually or add Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford to your tour, discover 1,100 years at one of England’s finest medieval castles at your own pace.

Admire the beauty of the Rose & Peacock Gardens and watch a live display of jousting or archery. We also compiled a guide to some of the famous castles to discover in the UK.


Bath is another jewel of British history for everyone looking to discover something truly special. This UNESCO World Heritage city is a treasure trove of culture and heritage, with a burgeoning literary significance that rivals any other.
