Warwick Castle

While my sister was visiting we drove out to Warwick Castle one morning. Finn was in school so we didn't tell him we were going and try not to bring it up around him since going to a castle and watching a birds of prey show would have been way cooler to him than another long day at school. But, it was definitely a worthwhile trip and one we think we'll make again with the next set of visitors so we'll be sure to bring him next time.

Warwick Castle's origins date back to 1068 when William the Conqueror first built it (it was rebuilt in the 12th century). Inside they have done a great job of preserving a lot of the history and they have a lot going on (tours and shows) to really keep you engaged. We watched a birds of prey demonstration which was very good.
















 We ended the visit with a trip to the gift shop where we purchased a BUCKET of candy. 
Mary was pumped.

  1. Gorgeous! I love how other countries can say that something was "re-built in the 12 century." Makes you realize what a baby America is.
