Warwick or Disneyland?

Posted by admin on Apr 14, 2010

After our eventful train ride back to London we headed srtaight to the British Library.  It’s hard to imagine actually using this as a library and not just staring jaw dropped at the immensity of it.  We went to the Treasures room where they keep the old Bibles and the Magna Carta and many other things.  It was fun to look for sure.  The next morning we caught a train to Stratford-upon-Avon and found ourselves in Shakespeare world.  When we first got off the train we were initially disappointed with the feel of the town…but after walking a bit we found ourselves in the center of it all and were very excited.  Seeing where Shakespeare was born and how he grew up was exciting.  The house was so old that it wasn’t level on the second floor and every floor board creaked and the doors were built just for us…but no one taller than us :)    Close by is Warwick so we got on another train and headed there.  Warwick castle is huge and they have made it like disneyland.  We got to see a Trebuchet fired and a knight riding a horse and yes we climbed 530 steps to look out the highest tower!  We were exhausted after viewing the castle.  We will check back later and write about our last day and a half.

Wasn’t Warwick fun? Did you do the Birds of Prey show? and the jousting event? Medieval Disneyland is right…!
