Things to do in Warwickshire

Taking in National Trust destinations, castles, gardens and a working farm made famous by Countryfile, we’re incredibly lucky that Studley Castle is surrounded by some of the best things to do in Warwickshire. The parks and farms are flush with wildlife while the nearby stately homes are steeped in history – and the gardens and marble fountain at Kenilworth Castle are certainly one of the most picturesque tourist spots Warwickshire has to offer.
