Warwick Castle is a splendid medieval castle, one of the finest stately homes in England, and will appeal to all the family. Inside are the Great Hall, State rooms, Chapel, Ghost Tower and dungeons. Outside there is a Victorian rose garden, conservatory and peacock garden and in the summer there is a full programme of activities. There are live shows demonstrating jousting, archery, falconry and combat as well as a huge reconstructed trebuchet (catapult) that is fired twice a day.

2. Get to know the Great Bard

Stratford-Upon-Avon is world-famous as the picturesque home of the great English playwright William Shakespeare and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Tourism forms a major part of the economy and at peak seasons the town centre and nearby River Avon are bustling places. To gain an insight into the great Bard’s life and times, five houses with Shakespeare connections can be explored including Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Nash’s House, New Place and Shakespeare’s Birthplace. Shakespeare’s grave can be found at the beautiful Collegiate Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity.

3. Enjoy the gardens of Baddesley Clinton

Baddesley Clinton is an 18th-century moated manor house surrounded by delightful gardens. You can wander around the formal courtyard garden, wildflower and meadow gardens, as well as enjoying woodland and lakeside walks.

4. Play a round of golf at the Belfry

The Belfry is renowned as one of the world’s most prestigious golfing destinations, having hosted the Ryder Cup on four occasions, more than any other venue in the world. The two stunning championship courses have provoked some of the most dramatic moments in the history of the sport.

5. See how life was lived ‘upstairs and downstairs’

Situated on the banks of the River Avon and surrounded by a deer park, Charlecote Park is a grand 16th-century country house, now administered by the National Trust. As well as the finery of the formal above-stairs rooms, visitors can see many of the rooms used by the servants. The scullery, kitchen, laundry and brewhouse all offer a view of life below stairs

Coughton Court holds a unique place in English history with its close connections to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. This fine Tudor house, surrounded by delightful gardens, offers an insight into the famous failed plot led by Guy Fawkes, whose discovery we still celebrate to this day on November 5th.
