The view of the River Avon from the Mill House is really special, you can see the remains of the old Castle Bridge here and the beautiful garden in Mill Lane which is also worth a visit.
We watched the jousting, it was no A Knight's Tale though, were is the Heath Ledger type?! It was enjoyable even without the eye candy, the setting is glorious.
We had a wander through the peacock garden and I managed to get a sneaky photo without the peacock peacocking at me. They are noisy things these peacocks and I have to admit I have the fear! I'm sure you'll agree the peacock topiary is pretty impressive too. There is a tearoom situated here with tasty looking cakes if you need a mid trip pick me up.
We took in the beauty of the rose gardens and cooled off in the ice pits located in the garden, I'm sure it says you can store ice in the pits for a couple of years. Who needs electricity, hey!
However my favourite view of the castle will always be the view you get for free when passing over the bridge on the A425. I am lucky enough to see this almost daily and never tire of it, it's just stunning.
We were treated to a trip to Warwick Castle courtesy of #DoMoreWithAvios. You can collect points from your purchases including every day things like grocery shopping and filling the car up to travel which you can then turn into awesome treats such as a day out, afternoon tea or you can use them in the more traditional usage to book a flight. The campaign Avios are currently running gives you the chance to spend your points on family or friends too, now to find someone with loads of points who fancies booking a flight to somewhere it's not raining...
If you fancy a trip to Warwick Castle and don't have any points to spend make sure you check out 2 for 1 deals before you go, you can usually find an offer on the back of a cereal packet and people even sell the tokens on eBay for a pound or so. An adult ticket is currently priced at £24.60.
