Studley Castle


"And to thee and thy company I bid a hearty welcome."

William Shakespeare, The Tempest, Act 5 Scene 1
Worcester City

The heart of Warwickshire

Discover the area

Studley Castle is nestled in the glorious Warwickshire countryside, an area best known as Shakespeare's England. Stratford Upon Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace, is a must see, and where you can experience historic sites, or stroll alongside the canals and perhaps enjoy a refreshing drink at one of the many pubs. Also close by is picturesque Henley-in-Arden, the charming town of Warwick, with its timber-framed houses and more notably Warwick Castle. Venture a little further afield and you can admire the villages and countryside of the Cotswolds.

Warwick Castle

This famous local landmark has a history stretching back almost 1100 years, and has survived attack, siege and fire. It makes for a great day out – take in the battlements and magnificent interiors then witness some of the darkest times in its history as you explore the dungeons.

There are spectacular shows that bring history vividly to life: birds of prey displays, the Castle’s resident bowman and the largest working siege machine in the world.
