Warwick Castle

Enjoy the beautiful grounds and gardens of Warwick Castle including the Mound which was first built in 1068 on the orders of William the Conqueror.

The Mound formed the most important part of the Norman Castle’s defence  system. The Peacock Garden, designed by the Victorian landscape gardener Robert Marnock includes topiary peacocks. Running gently down to the river is the Pageant Field, flanked on either side by trees, of which some, like the Cedars  of Lebanon, are over 200 years old.

The transformation from a fortress to a stately home created by one of Britain’s greatest landscape gardeners, Lancelot “Capability ” Brown.

It is believed that Warwick Castle was Brown’s first independent, castle commission and his achievements here during the 1750’s won him praise and national recognition.
