Learn how the 'Kingmaker' was the only man who dared defy the King, and how he defeated the armies of King Edward IV in battle before taking the King himself as a prisoner. Explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons.

In the castle's 14th-century gaol, the original dungeon, see graffiti left behind by prisoners hundreds of years ago. How many names can you spot?

Bus driver was over 30 minutes late. Time at Warwick Castle was much too short. Time spent at Stratford-upon-Avon was too long. Oxford tour was Ok. The guide was very knowledgeable, but overly dramatic / theatrical.

Our trip was canceled with no notification. We arrived at the embarkation point and were told by the tour operator that the trip had been canceled several days prior. Viator never sent notification. One positive note is that we were refunded very quickly.
