WARWICK

Warwick, county town of Warwickshire, is a pleasant blend of 16th- and 17th- century timbered buildings with 18- century brick. It's famous for its massive castle, but it also possesses several charming streetscapes, as well as an especially fine church chancel.

The magnificent 14th-century castle, beside the Avon River, is both medieval fortress and palatial mansion, set within a Victorian rose garden with peacocks and extensive parkland.

The Conservatory

Exhibits range from medieval weapons and armor to opulently furnished state rooms. Two waxwork presentations bring the history of the castle to life: Kingmaker - A Preparation for Battle, 1471 and A Royal Weekend Party, 1898.

  1. Ale zamczysko, przepiękne! I wydaje mi się, że nawet nie musiałabym wchodzić do środka, aby oglądać te wystawy, widok z zewnątrz by mi w zupełności wystarczył :D
