No visit to Warwickshire is complete without a visit to Warwick Castle.

There’s also amazing sights such as the Mighty Trebuchet, the Princess Tower, the Great Hall and State Rooms and let’s not forget the Castle Dungeon – do you dare enter?
Kenilworth Castle is another great place to visit with the family. There’s plenty to see and do including tower views, a walk around the Elizabethan Garden, touring the castle with its family friendly displays, a stop at the tearoom and so much more. Kenilworth Castle also hosts many fun events such as their annual Bonfire extravaganza, which has been placed as one of the top five displays in the UK by Visit England.
You don’t have to be a car enthusiast to enjoy a tour of the British Motor Museum. With over 300 classic cars on display, as well as fun events such as Mini Motorists (special under 5 activity mornings), and classic car workshops for classic car owners to develop their maintenance and restoration skills, there’s something for everyone.
Enjoy a crisp winter’s walk in Jephson’s Gardens, which is close to Leamington Spa’s town centre Parade. With lots of trails that lead you past pretty flowerbeds, sculptures and an elegant pond, it’s a great place to stretch your legs after a few hours shopping in Leamington. You’ll also discover the Jephson Glasshouse, which is filled with tropical trees and plants, a cafe and also a sensory garden.
If you love romance, drama and a gripping tale, a visit to the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Swan Theatre is a must in Stratford-upon-Avon. Enjoy plays by Shakespeare and his contemporaries at any time of the year.
For a museum visit with a difference, discover MAD Museum, situated in Stratford-upon-Avon’s town centre. A fun, quirky place, there’s lots of displays of mechanical art and design from all over the world including machines and devices used in films such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Scrapheap Challenge and Wallace and Gromit.
