The next day we went to Warwick Castle.
We had a fantastic day at Warwick.
First of all, my brother did Knights’ Training School.
This was absolutely the best part of the day for Buddy and he could have done it all day long! 1, 2, 3… do it again now!! Lol.
No Knight Training anywhere else that we might go to will be as good as this one.
Then, because we hadn’t had enough of combat, we went over to see the jousting. This was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!
It was done by the Knights of Middle England.
There were the good knights who were led by Thomas de Beauchamp the Earl of Warwick, and the bad knights who were led by the Black Knight who came from France I think. The maiden got captured but she fought her way out because she was awesome.
Me and Buddy with the Earl of Warwick.
Buddy and the Baddy! (They swapped weapons!)
After the jousting, me and Buddy and Daddy climbed up onto the battlements whilst Mummy sat down and had an ice-cream.
Then Mummy and I went inside the tower and did a Princess mystery thing where we had to save the prince who was trapped in a portrait. It was very clever and the pictures moved in the frames, just like in Harry Potter.
We went inside and had a tour of the castle and the guide told some scary stories about the history of the castle which made one little girl cry. Maybe it was his first time being a tour guide.
Then we watched a Horrible Histories show. It was funny. We didn’t get to go in the maze as we ran out of time and we didn’t go in the dungeons as it is too scary for children. I would like to go back again and stay over night in the castle because you can do that now. That way, I would have two days to see everything in the castle and I think you need two days to see everything.
At the end of the day, we watched the trebuchet fire.
It was an amazing day out and even though the queues were really long to get in, it was worth it. I highly recommend that you go here!
