History

Warwick Castle is an ancient castle with its roots dating back from 1068 and was originally built by William the Conqueror. Years later, possession of this castle has been passed on and was later on used to hold prisoners. During the 15th century, King Edward IV was even held captive in this castle.

During the reign of King Henry II, the Warwick Castle’s restoration has begun and was replaced with a stone castle.

Shedding its beauty, the catastrophic castle was then handed over to Sir Fluke Greville and was transformed into a country house. Wanting to restore its elegance and artistry, Sir Fluke Greville spent more than £20,000 renovating it. With its elegant structure and extricate details, the Warwick Castle has been known as a place of great strength but extraordinary delight. Possession of this castle belonged to the Greville family until 1978 and was later on bought by the Tussauds Group.
