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.

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."

Warwick Castle, Guy's Tower
A Raphael Tuck "Oilette" postcard from 1912. "Guy's Tower and
Entrance Gate. Guy's Tower, in the north-east corner of Warwick
Castle, is twelve-sided and rises to a height of 128 feet, surmounted
by a machicolated parapet. The view from the top is both
magnificent and extensive. The gateway is approached by a stone
bridge over the moat, and flanked on either side by octagonal
turrets; in the archway the portcullis is still in use, being raised and
lowered every morning and night."
