Warwick Castle's History Team will be blowing the dust off the Castle's unique collection of arms and armour in an exciting interactive exhibition. Guests will be able to get closer than ever before to our authentic pieces of shining armour and deadly weapons with our team explaining how the pieces worked, how they were made, who they supposedly belonged to and how they ended up at Warwick Castle. Throughout the month, three new talks and tours will be running:
24th October – 2nd November The Haunted Castle – Halloween extravaganza returning for another year!
3rd – 29th November Canaletto at the Castle - This November this castle welcomes back its old treasures as we redisplay these world famous paintings by the infamous Canaletto.

More About "UNBLOCKED"
Four ancient rooms are being opened for the first time – Barbican Battlements & Captain’s Room; a recently-unearthed bear pit in Bear Tower which was constructed during Richard III’s reign; Watergate Tower; and The Guards’ Room in Guy’s Tower – will excite and delight visitors of all ages and unlock defining chapters in the Warwick Castle story to reveal tales of battle, siege, murder, power struggles and hauntings.
Visitors have the chance to seek a shy ghost, explore a deadly bear’s lair and smell foul mediaeval sludge !
Barbican Battlements – The Fourteenth Century: Visitors will see and smell this ancient room - never before open to visitors - readied for mediaeval battle. Built in the reign of Edward III to protect the entrance to the Castle, the Barbican Battlements over the Portcullis include deadly murder holes through which boiling tar and human waste were poured on attacking forces.
Bear Tower – The Fifteenth Century: The county of Warwickshire and the heraldic crest of the Earls of Warwick are represented by a Bear and Ragged Staff, symbols whose history can be traced back to Warwick Castle including the keeping of a bear on site in the fifteenth century. In heraldry, a bear represents courage – but who is brave enough to venture into the never-seen-before Tower with its recently unearthed bear pit?
Watergate Tower – The Sixteenth Century: Reputedly haunted by the ghost of Sir Fulke Greville - playwright, poet, Member of Parliament…and victim of a gruesome murder - the Watergate Tower tells the tale of a notable life brought short by a disloyal, dagger-wielding servant. Fulke’s restless spirit is said to roam the tower – just one reason few people in living memory have ventured inside.
Guards’ Room – The Seventeenth Century: In 1642, during the Civil War, Warwick Castle - a stronghold for Parliamentary forces under its owner, Robert Greville - was besieged by Royalists stationed at St Mary’s Church in Warwick. This Guards’ Room at the top of Guy’s Tower was remodelled to fire cannons rather than arrows: visitors can experience the musty, smoky living conditions endured by the guards as they awaited attack and bore the ultimately futile siege.
Warwick Castle is open every day (apart from Christmas Day) and offers fun for the entire family with its exciting daily shows* and engaging live-actor attractions, The Castle Dungeon; Merlin: The Dragon Tower; and The Princess Tower.
Open the doorways and venture into towers that hide 1000 years of history and investigate secret passageways that lead to a forgotten past…Arms and Armour – interactive exhibition of the castle’s arms and armour. Includes tours such as ‘forgery vs. the real thing’, ‘why is armour so heavy – dispelling the Hollywood myths’ and ‘swords, axes & guns – which is more deadly’.
