Warwick Castle is considered one of the world’s finest examples of medieval architecture. This sprawling fortress – which attracts more than 800,000 visitors per year – was originally built in 1068 by William the Conqueror.

Today, the castle serves as an adventure playground for both adults and children, with falconry shows, a maze and a colossal catapult just some of the extra attractions. If you’re planning a visit to this magnificent structure which was fashioned out of wood, we’ve picked out some of the best hotels to use as a base – all bookable with Culture Trip.
