Unlocking Warwick’s first Court House Tour of the season on Easter Saturday was blessed with gorgeous, sunny weather, and the guests clearly enjoyed hearing from Sue about the history of the Grade-1 listed building and its place in the administration of Warwick .
These free Court House Tours last for about 45 minutes, and introduce visitors to some of the long history of the county town, and some of the personalities who have helped to shape its development since it was founded by Aethelflaeda, the Anglo-Saxon ‘Lady of the Mercians’, in the year 914.
At the end of the stroll round the outside of the building, it’s usually possible to have a look inside the Regency ballroom on the first floor. For nearly 300 years it has been the centre of Warwick society, staging balls, dinners, gentlemen’s card games, and wedding receptions. It is still hired frequently for dinners, receptions and musical evenings, as well as for regular sessions of yoga and pilates.
The Court House Tours will happen from 11am – 11.45am on the first Saturday of each month and on Bank Holiday Saturdays through the summer. Court House Tour Poster 2022 Dates
