Apr 11, 2014 - Oxford-Straford-Upon-Avon-Warwick

Monday we headed north out of London on our way to Warwick. The first stop of the day was the breathtaking Ornamental Gardens of Henry VIII’s, Hampton Court Place. We did not tour the Palace, but the gardens were impressive. It was so neat and colorful, it made use want to get home and get busy on our own. As we passed Winsor Castle, sitting on a hill in the mist of lush green fields, the road was blocked. The Queen was welcoming the president of Ireland and we got to see the Queens guard was on its way to the castle in all its splendor....

Nov 4, 2012 - Warwick & Stratford-upon-Avon

At 7:15 I get a text from Saba telling me she's going to be in the common room in a minute. OH NO! I have 15 minutes til' I have to be on the coach!!! I quickly get dressed, text her back, and throw things in my purse. We don't have to run as we get there on time, but still.. I almost slept in! THIS (and that other time I almost missed that first run) is why my friends make sure I'm up for the trips the following weekend. OKAY! So we're now on our way to visit Warwick Castle, and visit Shakespeare's birthplace! Awesome! :) The only...

Jul 2, 2012 - Warwick Castle

Monday July 2, 2012 Went to Warwick Castle. The castle is really a neat representative of a typical castle. It's private and somewhat 'Disneyfied" but still a great way to see a castle. They don't really tell you much about the history of the castle, but parts of it are over 1,000 years old. One section is a very effective horror tour. Jim, Jennifer and the kids did that part which took almost an hour. I didn't go along on that part. Jim said it was very good. There's one part of the castle that exhibits a weekend house party in 1898; That...

Jul 20, 2011 - Warwick , England

While in the Cotswolds, we also spent a day visiting Warwick Castle. The visitor experience is designed to appeal to families as a fun day out. We took several guided tours that were each interesting and entertaining: Ghost tour, Shakespeare tour, State Room tour, and Dungeon tour. We also saw the Falconry show and walked the castle walls. We also enjoyed a couple creative self-guided displays that featured lifelike wax figures. "Kingmaker" showcased different aspects of castle life. "Secrets and scandals of the Royal Weekend Party" brings...

Sep 23, 2008 - Day12 Coventry/Warrick

Views from the tower Thomas the Tank Engine could have been filmed here. Tess: There are 135 steps to the top of the Warwick Castle tower up a windy, narrow staircase, without any handrails … but the climb was worth it. The views from the top were amazing. You could see the river with the ruins of a bridge next to the cutest little gardens belonging to the cutest little tudor cottages. We were up so high it looked like it came out of a Thomas the Tank Engine scene. But to see these exquisite views you had to stand on top of the murder...

Days Far Away

Aug 15, 2008 - England (Days Inn Motel - Warwick)

We both slept really well last night. Even though we are just off the motorway one can hardly hear any traffic noise. Breakfast was Continental Style and was delivered to our room. Friendly service and nice food. A good start to the day. Breakfast done, and us scrubbed and ready to go, we head off out to our little car and head off out on to the motorway. Today we are off to Warwick Castle. First we have to head south towards a place called Gaydon. Here we can change direction and head north. That done and now north bound we look for the...

Aug 14, 2008 - England (Hotel Master Robert – London to Days Inn Motel - Warwick)

It is not just a simple matter of checking out of the hotel and heading north. First we have to pick up the rental car (near the next railway station along the line), head back to Master Robert, pick up the luggage, find our way out of London and get to Warwick. First breakfast. The little Indian guy is there again and breakfast is well done. It is amazing what a difference having someone who gives a f**k makes. Back to the room and the luggage. The front desk staff allow us to put the packs in a cloakroom and, all signed out, we head back...

Jul 7, 2008 - Cheltenham - Day Three

Today required a reasonably early start, and so breakfast was completed and we were heading out the door just after 9.30am. We headed straight to Warwick Castle, about an hour north of Cheltenham. As forecast, the weather was very changeable, with frequent rain the order of the day. As has often been the case, however, we were fairly lucky and completed most of our castle visit in sunshine. Even luckier, Zoë and Barb noticed some folded paper on the ground on the way into the castle, and we pocketed two £20 notes – not a bad start to the...

Jun 30, 2008 - To Warwick Castle

We had another wonderful day yesterday. We started out by going to |Windsor castle. The queen was in residence and the added security was obvious. Clive took us to Richmond Hill for obvious reasons and then home to a delicious dinner. Glenna's friend from teaching, Jennifer and her husband Matt, as well as Paul and Liz, friends of Chris and Clive joined us for a great time. This morning we are off to check out two more castles on Glenna's must see list. It's hard to believe our holiday is nearing an end. We have had almost perfect weather...

May 31, 2008 - The Road to Warwick

Well, the Friebel family and I headed out from RAF Fairford intending to reach the Warwick Castle as soon as possible, however we discovered some things along the way. The Fairford area and north are part of the Cotswolds. This was is an area that is known for its' wonderful stone/tile. We immediately noticed a difference in the architecture and the materials used to build houses. The towns were neat and clean. Many of the houses/buildings in the Norfolk and Suffolk areas are built with flint stones. They are literally flint stones that are...

May 31, 2008 - Warwick Castle

Well we made it to Warwick castle and the weather was perfect! It was pretty busy so we had to park way out in a field and it took about 20 minutes to get there, but it was a good warm up for the castle. We got there about 2pm so we headed down to the Jousting area to get a good spot for the 3pm Joust. The grounds were so beautiful. A little river runs through the grounds and there is a mill with mill wheel and falls...beautiful. We watched the Joust...very exciting, especially for little Emily...her eyes were huge! After the Joust we...

May 29, 2008 - Off to Warwick Castle!!

Well this is the first entry of many to come. My family has not yet arrived, so I'm staying busy working and taking local jounts to explore the area around where we live now, Thetford- 11 miles North of RAF Lakehneath (which is about 90 miles north of London). My friend Mike and his Wife Maig Ling (and 3yo daughter Emily) have invited me to go with them to visit the Warwick Castle. The fabulous thing about the castle right now is that they have live jousting until the 1st of June, so we will get to see that!! I've never seen a live joust,...
