I spent some time declaring each new room my 'all-time favourite space', however a definitive decision was only made once I'd discovered the The Ladies Boudoir (shown above). The Ladies Boudoir was a 'private resting room' for the countess of Warwick and her friends. The beautifully light and feminine room was designed by Anne, 4th countess of Warwick in 1871. I couldn't quite figure out what the soft decor of the room reminded me of at first, that is until I read how it was designed in the style of the boudoir at the Palace of Versailles. Of all the places to imitate, I'd suggest the royal château is pretty good inspiration!
A moment that could only be described as 'magical' was walking by the Servants' Bathroom. Running bathwater monitored by a waxwork figure was accompanied by an overwhelmingly beautiful scent for visitors to enjoy as they walked past the small but cosy room. Warwick Castle also provides access to the servants quarters, though on this occasion I kept to the more grandeur of rooms due to time constraints. Though having said that, I was sure to make time for the impressive Towers & Ramparts. Listen, I'm not saying walking up hundreds of narrow steps in heeled-boots is an enjoyable task.. but it's a worthwhile one! Not only are the views incredible, but the insight into the techniques implemented to ensure protection is beyond fascinating. If you've got the time (and the energy), one of the oldest parts of Warwick Castle, The Mound, would very much be worth checking out - you'll be able to see as far as Stratford upon Avon from the 1068 vantage point!
As I mentioned over on Instagram, I love castles - I really love castles. So, I'm entirely biased when I speak of how much I enjoyed my visit to this medieval castle originally built by William the Conqueror. However, they say 'a picture is worth a thousand words' and so consider these photos the unbiased confirmation of just how impressive Warwick Castle truly is!
