Top Things To Do In Warwickshire
Are you craving a taste of the British countryside? Or perhaps a long romantic walk along some of the greatest stretches of canal in the country. Whatever your countryside fantasies may consist of, you might not have considered Warwickshire as an option. So let’s run through some of the best reasons to consider it as your next point of interest.
Warwickshire has a number of different official trails listed from leisurely to energetic, all of which vary in distance. If you prefer to plan your route before you set off, there are a number of named trails such as the Kenilworth Castle Cycling Route, which will include some great sights of the castle itself.
We also strongly recommend you start from the Hatton Locks to follow the canal round. This will give you options on either walking towards the Royal Leamington Spa area or if you wanted to see more of what the Warwickshire countryside has to offer you, you can head towards Hockley Heath.
We know how important quality family time is, which is why Warwickshire is the perfect spot to keep the whole family entertained! There are plenty of exciting activities to dive into.
Why not drop by Warwick Castle? Not only is this castle guaranteed to deliver on adventure and excitement, but you may even learn a thing or two. Listed as one of the best castles in England by The Anglotopia Magazine, Warwick Castle is rich in history and can be enjoyed by all ages.
