The site of Warwick Castle was first established by Ethelfleda in 914 before William the Conqueror established a motte-and-bailey Castle in 1608. It was during the reign of King Henry II that the construction of a stone castle keep began.
One of the finest Medieval Castles in England, Warwick Castle has been the backdrop to many events in our Country’s history.
