Thrilling demonstrations and an insight into the life and times of Shakespeare.
Warwick Castle and its grounds are alive with shows, from live-action jousting tournaments to the birds of prey show; a genuinely thrilling and spectacular sight of Andean condors, sea eagles and peregrine falcons swooping and soaring inches above your head. Come and meet Warwick Castle's bowman and find out what it was like to be a medieval archer, or if you dare, go down into the dungeons. Your driver-guide will take you through various exhibits and staged moments in real history.
Head to Stratford-upon-Avon and trace the footsteps and life of the world's most famous and celebrated playwright, William Shakespeare, and discover the places he lived and loved. Visit Anne Hathaway's cottage, the delightful thatched marital home of Shakespeare. Stop by Holy Trinity Church, where the famous writer was baptised and buried. Before getting on the road to the idyllic Cotswolds region.
Did you know that Shakespeare's father, John, was the Mayor of Stratford, which was the highest elective office in the town? This social elevation was crucial in Shakespeare's story as a writer. It meant that William would receive a grammar school education, where he learned to read, speak and write in Latin and memorise and perform stories from history. These skills we must imagine would have come in really useful for England's best-loved playwright.
