Warwick - the Castle
The construction of Warwick Castle began about 914 AD when fortifications were constructed in order
to protect the small hilltop settlement. The building grew over the centuries and it is now one of
England's finest examples of a mediaeval castle.
The castle was bought by the Tussauds Group in 1978 - they carried out repairs and restoration and
opened the castle to the public so that it is now a huge tourist attraction with hundreds of thousands of
visitors every year - try parking there in the summer !!
The
Warwick Chamber of Trade has an excellent website with lots of information about the town, whilst
more information about the castle can be found at the Warwick Castle website:

from then.

This lovely old Oilette postcard by Raphael Tuck was mailed in 1911.  From the reverse - "Warwick Castle,
standing on a mound above the Avon, is the finest example of a fortified mansion in the country. Ethelfleda,
King Alfred's daughter, is believed to have founded it in 915. Guy's Tower and Caesar's Tower flank the
gateway (all three dating from the fourteenth century), and there are two unfinished towers - the Bear and the
Clarence."
