What To Do When You Stay
In Warwick by Frederick Hoymer
Dating back to the times
before the Domesday Book, the historic city of Warwick has plenty to offer
its visitors. It is the county town of Warwickshire and lends its name
to this English county.
|The most famous building
associated with the city is Warwick Castle, which has been on its current
site since 1068, making it almost a thousand years old (Warwick itself
is older and can be traced back to at least 914 AD). The castle is a major
tourist attraction in the UK and visitors from all over the globe to visit
this magnificent building. Those who are brave enough can fire a trebuchet
- a kind of catapult that can send 30 pound stone balls over impressive
distances. If your children get tired of the buildings, there are also
amusement rides for them. Older visitors can take advantage of the regular
paranormal events that are held at the castle - who knows, you may even
encounter a ghost on your visit.
Whether your hotel is in
the centre of Warwick or the outskirts, you won't be far from the shopping.
Many of Warwick's shops and
restaurants are still locally owned and run, so you will be able to experience
some of England's cultural diversity when you visit.
A number of different festivals
are hosted in the city. These range from classical and contemporary music
through to a folk music festival and a Victorian Evening, held late in
the year, where you can step back in time.
|Horse racing enthusiasts
may want to time their visit to Warwick to coincide with one of the 25
race meetings that take place throughout the year. Or you may just prefer
to play a round of golf on the course that is in the centre of the racecourse.
Theatre goers will want to
make a trip to the Dream Factory Theatre, home of the local youth troupe,
the Playbox Theatre Company. They perform a wide variety of plays throughout
the year at affordable prices.
You will be spoilt for choice
if you choose to ignore your hotel's restaurant and eat out instead. Warwick
offers both traditional and international cuisine, so you can decide to
eat a traditional English roast dinner or get more adventurous at Indian,
Chinese, Italian or Thai establishments.
One of the main shopping
attractions in Warwick is the array of antique shops that still thrive
there, specializing in furniture, pottery, jewellery and other artifacts.
You could also browse around the three antique centres that are featured
in Warwick, each of which has a large number of stalls to keep avid antique
collectors happy for hours.
Apart from the golf course
in the centre of the racecourse, there are plenty of other courses available
within easy reach of the city. Whether you want a leisurely 9 hole round
of golf or would prefer to challenge yourself at the Championship level
of Warwick Golf Club.
Whatever you decide to do
in Warwick, there are plenty of places that you can stay at. These range
from friendly, small, bed and breakfasts through to the larger guest houses
