Going into the Medieval Castle of Warwick
We have been told again and again to go and see Warwick Castle. We were lucky enough to find 2 for 1 coupons for our day trip!

It is quite expensive to get into the castle grounds. £25.00 each!! So be sure to get a '2 or 1 coupon.' Either prepaid from this link or these can be found in the news papers and on cereal boxes. These coupons also work for various other tourist attractions across England.
We caught the train from our house, and since we have the two together rail card we get 30% off, this helped with costs as well. The train was about an hour, with a change at Moor Street.

We arrived in Warwick station and it was about a 10 minute walk to the castle. It tried to rain a little bit, but it didn't rain during our exploring.
We started exploring the castle grounds when a couple of ladies asked if we could take their picture in the stocks. We did, and they asked of if we wanted on too.
so we jumped on the opportunity to have a picture of us both in the stocks.
We made a cool vlog about our time at Warwick Castle.
Wow the castle was like the ones you see in the movies.
There was a horrible histories maze which was fun.

There was hashtags and fun signs about English history.
The idea of the maze was to go around reading the signs and collecting stamps at each little area. The maze covered vikings....
|...William the Conqueror...|
|...the Norman Invasion...|
Even though the maze was made for kids we got lost. It was funny seeing everyone walking around lost in the maze.
Some people were so just going in circles and trying to find their way out.
We managed to find our way out.
The kids exit was ridiculous.
All this fun and we haven't even entered the castle yet.
The inside was cool.
We walked up the hill the castle is built on for the view.
There was a catapult in the background.
There was lots of people at the castle because it was a nice day.
There was a tea house and a posh looking garden as well.
We climbed the stairs to the top of the castle towers. There were pretty high. Must have been pretty mind blowing for people back in the day.
Look at how small those people down there are.
We also went inside the castle where there were some multi media exhibits showing the history of the castle and it's owners. There was even a two horrible histories show put on that told the history of the castle in a fun way. There was another show we could have watched. If you paid £10 each extra you could go to the Dungeon where they put on a show. It is the same Dungeon branded show that is in London, Berlin, and many other tourist places.
We had a great time in Warwick. It was a nice little trip and we didn't have to travel very far at all. On the way to the train we stopped at a cafe and they gave us a bunch of their fresh baked bread for free because it was the end of the day.
