    Be sure not to miss the birds of prey show - amazing to see a huge eagle soaring and swooping as well as a big owl and some vultures. Don't miss the tower and ramparts. It is hard work but great views

    Dragon show is rubbish but the eagle and vulture feeding show (birds of prey) was just brilliant! Making picnic while watching the tribuchet show is also recommended ;)

    Dungeon tour was a good scary start but we were disappointed that castle is a commercial kids theme park rather than historic monument. National Trust it ain't!

    Make sure you get a 2-4-1 voucher before going (or book at least week in advance). £6 car park fee can probably be reduced with research into town centre parking too

    Visited yesterday on a 2 for 1 adult ticket. Not worth the normal price of £30 +. Good New Merlin Tower was a real let done after doing the Dungeon which was very well done! Poor value for money.

    Warwick is a beautiful castle, always worth a visit at the height of summer when the jousting is on. It's not cheap but 2 for 1 deals are usually easy to find
