A Cracker of A Christmas at Warwick Castle

Santa and his elves make magic

Warwick Castle has this year’s festive season all wrapped up for families and friends with treats and surprises for all ages from 23 November 2018 until 2 January 2019.

Treasure hunts, seasonal storytelling and Santa Sleepovers in Knight’s Village are all on the wish list at the historic castle, open every day apart from Christmas Day to thrill and delight the whole family with birds of prey displays, meetings with Santa and Castle characters aplenty.

Pull on your wellies, button up your coats and wrap up with a scarf for a winter walk around the Castle’s grounds. Families can explore the HORRIBLE HISTORIES® SCAVENGER HUNT, solving clues along the way to claim a festive reward, and marvel at the twice daily WINTER BIRDS OF PREY SHOW with the Castle’s beautiful and powerful creatures swooping low over the Castle ramparts.

Indoors, the Castle’s Elves ensure every room and rampart is festively bedecked in time for the first yuletide guests, with the 20-feet high Christmas tree taking pride of place in the medieval Great Hall.

In November, guests could join Mr and Mrs Claus for Santa’s Stately Breakfast. Dining in the opulence of the State Dining Room, the jolly couple added a festive feeling to families as they enjoyed a delicious feast of a full English breakfast.

Stories with Santa offers the youngest guests a heart-warming twenty-minute experience including a jolly sing song, helping the Elves prepare for ‘the big day’ and a story with Santa in the Library. Over in THE PRINCESS TOWER join Princess Felice, the true love of homegrown-hero Guy of Warwick, to help her solve Christmas riddles and reunite the couple in time for their Winter Wedding.

Magical SANTA SLEEPOVERS in Knight’s Village winter wonderland include a wake-up call by one of Santa’s elves and a gift for young guests. Visitors can spend the night in a Woodland Lodge by the River Avon.
