Camp out like a King or Queen this summer, at Warwick Castle Medieval Glamping Village. Set in a woodland grove in the grounds of the historic Castle, Medieval Glamping is an exclusive fully set-up, ready-to-sleep experience. It even includes exciting evening entertainment and breakfast, along with two day priority entrance to Warwick Castle.
All 41 tents are roomy enough to walk about and stand up inside, feature electric lighting, and are furnished with waterproof wooden flooring, scatter cushions and throws, ample storage and a mirror. They all come with wooden-framed beds and bed linen, in-tent power and free Wi-Fi, with additional airbeds and cots available upon request (subject to availability). You'll find heated toilet and hot-shower facilities in the Glamping Village. Breakfast is included and served in the Grand Medieval Banqueting Tent – as is a daily Medieval Dinner Feast for an additional charge of £16.95 per adult and £7.95 per child.
Medieval-themed, interactive, evening entertainment is included in the price. Try your hand at Have-A-Go Archery for adults and children, which is new for 2015, or enrol at Knights School, which teaches sword skills, or Jesters School where you will learn to juggle.
