Trivia Trail

Historic Warwick’s compact layout, pretty back lanes, timber-framed houses, mature gardens, majestic castle and the beautiful St Mary’s Church make this mediaeval town a perfect setting for a quiz trail.

After meeting your Trivia Trail host at a pre-booked Warwick gastropub or tearoom, teams of up to six set off in three minute intervals following the quiz sheet directions and answering the questions along the way.  This 90’ trail includes some steps, a few slight gradients but no steep hills.  Options of pushchair and manual wheelchair-friendly detours are available without affecting answering the questions. (Not really suitable for electric wheelchairs due to width of path).  Also dog-friendly subject to choice of meeting venue.

The quiz trails are ideal for adults and children aged eight upwards.  Younger children welcome to come along too. The Detail: For all the nitty-gritty regarding food & drink, parking, safety, etc. – please click on ‘the detail’.

Commemorating the 400 year anniversary of the visit to Warwick by King James I, the town attractions have teamed up to produce a series of events to celebrate the occasion over the weekend of 3-5 Nov,  2017.


King James 1 had a chair specially made for him 400 years ago when he feasted in the Great Hall, Lord Leycester.  We will re create that feast!
The event will be a celebratory night in the Great Hall of St James at the Lord Leycester Hospital, with guests encouraged (though not mandatory) to dress in C17th costume or come  in Grand modern attire – the Grander the better!   At dinner, authentic food of the time will be served including Pease Soup, Roasted game and pig, roasted vegetables, Posset, cheese and fruit. Tables and halls will be lavishly decorated with a cornucopia of flowers, foliage and fruits as was typical at the time. You will be entertained by music of the time! Book tickets now (see below.)






 On Friday November 3, the Lord Leycester Hospital in the Great Hall will recreate the Grand Banquet put on by the Town of Warwick in the Kings  honour.  It won’t be the three day event of four hundred years ago but it will be a lavish, extravagant evening.  A limited number of tickets will be on sale starting September 4! On Saturday afternoon the Lord Leycester Courtyard and Great Hall will come alive with eating and drinking, music and dancing.

Four hundred years ago, in 1605, a man called Guy Fawkes and a group of plotters attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London with barrels of gunpowder placed in the basement. They wanted to kill King James and the King’s leaders. In celebration of his survival, King James ordered that people of England should have a great bonfire! This year, Warwick Town Bonfire will be held at Warwick Racecourse on 4th November! The gates open at 5pm, so come and enjoy the hot refreshments and children’s fun area with bouncy castles.
