    Is there a decent camp site within walking distance/bus ride of the castle.

    It was very expensive when I went there about 10 years ago.

    A bit artificial as well.

    It is owned by the same people as Alton Towers etc, and it shows.

    Personally I would give it a miss.

    Do us a favour, take Dawn to see the dungeons, don't worry if she wants to stay, in fact, surprise her leave her there, she'll always be grateful. She loves those sort of places, I take her as often as I can. :Rofl1: :Rofl1: :Rofl1:

    We went to Warwick Castle, whilst we were staying at the Racecourse site, about 7 or 8 years ago because Jill had wanted to go for a while. It wasn't cheap but I don't recall it being too expensive compared to some places. If I remember correctly we got discount vouchers from the caravan site.

    It is a bit plastic but the trebuchet was a laugh to watch.

    Better value than anything English Heritage manages - but that may be my prejudice born of experience of working with them :BigGrin:
