Warwick Walks

The weekly Warwick Walks will be running again from Spring 2017.

In the meantime, should you have any enquiries about ‘one off’ walks for groups please contact the TIC on 01926 492212

A walk around historic Warwick has been introduced on a Sunday afternoon commencing from outside the old Court House in Jury Street. Heart Of England Blue Badge Guides, Gary Millward, Peter Douce and Dave Fisher have joined forces to produce an informative, witty and interesting walk.

Gary, a resident of Warwick, commented ‘I know the incredible impact the Castle has on the town but very often the history, architecture and fascinating stories beyond the Castle are not experienced by visitors’.

Peter, now Kenilworth based, attended school in Warwick and has always been captivated by the people and places that have created the Warwick story.

Dave, from 20 miles down the road in Birmingham joked ‘ We Brummies don’t tend to travel far so it says a lot about Warwick that I am happily driving up and down the M40 to be part of the Warwick Walk experience’

At only £5 per person (under 10s are free), tours depart every Sunday at 2pm. There is no need to book-simply turn up.’
