Warwick Castle Time Tower Launch

On Saturday Lewis and I were invited along to Warwick Castle with Erica and H from 92three30 for the launch of the all new Time Tower. We are becoming very fond of Warwick Castle after visiting late summer last year so were delighted to visit again and take in the wonderful sights.

Warwick Castle Time Tower 1We began our visit by having tea and cakes in the first new attraction to Warwick Castle, the Conservatory Tea Rooms which overlook the most amazing Peacock Garden.

This journey itself lasts for about 15 minutes, spending 5 minutes in a different room. You begin your journey in a sit down mini theatre, for a video of the beginning of Warwick Castle’s life in 914AD. Then you are taken through into another room where we taught the construction history on a 3D model and about various battles and disasters. Lastly we were then introduced to all the previous owners of Warwick Castle on moving photos, thus giving the last room a “Harry Potter” feel with moving and talking photos.

Warwick Castle Time Tower 2This is an absolute great concept, and certainly a must visit for all visitors, young or old. Lewis was really taken in by the new attraction and I personally feel its a great way to get the history into young children as they easily loose interest with reading boards. This new feature keeps children’s attention, making it fun for learning history.

The Time Tower will be open to the public from the 28th March and will be free to visit.
