Warwick, the county town of Warwickshire, is situated just 24 miles from the UK’s ‘second city’ Birmingham, meaning that the buzz of a cosmopolitan city is only a short distance away via car or public transport. Birmingham offers unrivalled shopping, cuisine and a vibrant arts and entertainment scene for visitors to enjoy and Warwick is the ideal base for any trip to this West Midlands metropolis for those wanting to escape the city pace.
The town of Warwick itself has witnessed a varied history, from the Norman invasion to the Great Fire of Warwick in 1694 which destroyed most of the medieval buildings. Warwick Castle offers an interactive medieval experience for the whole family in the Castle Dungeon and holds various exhibitions each year educating visitors on the castle’s rich heritage. Warwick’s past can also be considered by visiting St John’s Museum, a Jacobean mansion within ornate grounds, and the Warwickshire Museum in the central Market Hall.
There is also plenty to do in the great outdoors in the form of parks, nature reserves and public gardens. St Nicholas Park features an 18 hole miniature golf course, picnic area, all weather pitch and leisure centre with sports hall, gym and swimming pool; perfect for an action-packed family day out.
