A Walk around Warwick

Last weekend I was up in the Midlands and ended up in Warwick.  We (me and my sweetie) were going to go and visit the locks on the canal, but we never got there as Warwick is so pretty and we didn’t have time!  Something to look forward to!

What does Warwick have going for it?  Well it is one of the oldest towns in England and it is really beautiful.  (Please click on my links to learn more about this place as I am not a Historian)  It has some lovely architecture…

Here are a few examples of the Medieval architecture that has survived a major fire in 1694.  The buildings are pretty wonky and absolutely stunning in design.

We came across an amazing garden when we arrived.  It just goes to show you that it is worth going down the road less trodden to find The Mill Garden.

It was amazing value at £1.50!  The weather was overcast and the ground was very wet as we had just had some rain, but the views and garden were stunning.  The people who own it were lovely and really like sharing what they have helped to create and maintain over a few generations.

There is a wide variety of flowers and trees and many places to sit and enjoy the views.  There are so many plants.

To top it all off, one is overlooked by the Castle.

How amazing it is to have a garden overlooked by the Castle!  We didn’t go into the castle.  It was rather steep at over £21 per person.  However there are deals if you book in advance online.

Fortunately, although the day was grey, it stayed dry, so we were able to wander around the town and do a bit of window shopping.  This is one town that I will definitely be visiting again.  Maybe I will even make it to the canal!

  1. Wow great photos of such a quaint town. I was there last summer and i enjoyed the castle, although it is very commercialized, and i had an amazing Plowman’s lunch at one of the local restaurants on the main street. Thanks for reminding me of fond memories.
