DH and I visited Warwick Castle as part of an all-day tour going to Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick. We had a great time exploring the castle, and honestly could have spent quite a bit more time there. This is sort of the Disneyland of British castles. They have mannequin displays of medieval scenes in one area, and scenes of another era in another area; it has been a part of British history for nine centuries.
It is well done though, and we enjoyed it. They had an ice skating rink set up in the middle for those wanting more than castle exploration. The views from the castle were breathtaking. This is one part of the tour I would say do on your own if possible, because you can easily spend a lot of time here...more than what a tour allows.
We had heard while we were there that a Saudi Arabian prince was going to buy Warwick Castle, and its future was questionable. It still appears to be doing business as usual though.
