SALE: Book before 28th February to save up to 25% on two-days of action-packed adventure, from only £163 per family
Themed overnight accommodation in cosy woodland lodge
Mediaeval-themed entertainment at the ‘Tiny Knight’s Club’
New for spring 2017, Warwick Castle launches ‘Tiny Knights’ sleepovers designed for families with active toddlers and pre-schoolers. Over two full days of fun, little knights and princesses can discover first-hand more than 1,100 years of history and enjoy craft, songs and story-time as part of an enchanting stay in the mediaeval-themed Knight’s Village, located within a woodland glade in the Castle grounds.
Available for mid-week stays on selected dates throughout March and May 2017, those booking before 28th February save up to 25% off ‘Tiny Knights’ sleepovers.
With family-friendly accommodation in a cosy Knight’s Village Woodland Lodge, the package also includes two days’ priority entry to Warwick Castle with VIP access; a hearty breakfast for all the family in the Mediaeval Banquet Hall; two-hour playtime in the Tiny Knight’s Club, exclusive to Knight’s Village guests; and car parking.
Keeping young, enquiring minds and hands busy can be a challenge, but not at Warwick Castle. Easy to explore on foot, the Castle and grounds offer plenty to excite the imagination and retain the attention of the most active and curious little guests: the Horrible Histories® Maze, complete with a Viking ship; the Pageant Playground; birds of prey swooping overhead in the Flight of the Eagles Show; and the ever-so-slightly spooky Bear Tower. During their stay, young guests will encounter memorable characters from history, experts at ensuring children of all ages enjoy stories from the Castle’s past. To run off some of that boundless energy, explore the Castle grounds and gardens, in full spring bloom, and home to the Castle’s famous peacocks.
Historical quests completed, families can return to Knight’s Village where their little ones can enjoy a free two-hour playtime in the Tiny Knight’s Club. Hosted by the Castle jester, it’s a hands-on play experience with crafts, colouring, building, songs and storytelling.
After a fun-packed day, it’s time to retire to a Woodland Lodge to drift off to well-earned sleep in either a travel cot (provided on request) or their own bedroom – adorned with a fun mediaeval-themed mural featuring the Castle. Whilst the kids sleep soundly, parents can relax in front of the TV or enjoy river and woodland views from their private terrace.
All lodges come complete with a family-sized bathroom, towels, free Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities. Bottle warmers and other essentials are available from reception.
Tiny Knights sleepovers are available on the 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd March and 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th May 2017. Prices from £163 per family based on two adults and one child under three years sharing.
