Warwick castle full entry - £5.50 Tesco clubcard vouchers (now includes dungeon and Merlin)

23
Found 11th Mar 2013
You can get a Warwick castle day entry ticket in exchange for £5.50 worth of Tesco clubcard vouchers, but for a limited time they are also giving you access to the dungeon and the Merlin attraction (around £10 more)

Seems to be a good deal, the two free extras are valid until March 22nd, however you can still use the tickets for 3 months after that date just without the dungeon and Merlin entrance fee's (thanks oddballjamie)

Price on the door usually is Adults £25.80, Children £19.80

The Kingdom ticket is valid until March 22nd, the standard pass lasts months. I went last Tuesday using my points, great day out usually £25.90!

Took about 3 working days to get the tickets.

Also four new areas of the castle were opened up last month for those who have been before.

Last thing: get there before 11 as the dungeon and tower time need to be booked and the slots fill up quick.

the dungeon is fab!!! 100% worth a visit but NOT for kids! x

Always loved Warwick castle as a kid. I used to live in a house on the side of the castle wall, even had Japanese tourists taking pictures through our lounge window X) . Anyone expecting a historic day out will be very disappointed these days it is more of a family/kids theme attraction (but without the rides). They have sacked the historians and replaced them with actors and even renamed historic parts of the casle. Seeing how much they normally charge this is a bargain and if you have kids they will love it but don't expect to much of a history lesson !.

I know what you mean, I think however that it's good they have moved along with the times, and the actors play a good part in bringing the history to life for the little ones

My daugher is going on a school trip there in the next few weeks. We did have an annual pass until recently and she loves it .Just a quick tip for any parents. When you get in through the turn styles after showing your ticket turn RIGHT !. Left is the playground that you will never get the kids out of it to see the rest, save that for near the end. My wife gets embarrassed when I play along with the actors, try it some are really good at improvisation some.... well they don't know how to take it HAHA

I thought the same when I overheard a tour guide explaining to a group of school children in the Great Hall that a large sword was the actual one used to kill a dragon. All good fun though.

Tip: you can leave the castle and get your hand stamped for re-entry if you fancy having lunch in the town instead of paying Tussards prices.

OP - you should put the normal price in the title, you'll get loads of heat from the Sports Direct fans then.

Good tip, never knew that - although the chippy in the town is extortionate!

Let's get this bubbling up then

This place is fantastic. Went a few years ago with my oh. We both loved it. Highly recommended. And, great price!

That's a great tip about avoiding the playground until the end,my son always gets upset when he has to leave it

Wetherspoons in the market square is only a short walk

Both son and daughter love this, we go nearly every year. They haven't beaten the Narnia Christmas yet, but it is a great day out, and long. They do seem to charge extra for EVERYTHING each year, but as the 2 are now included it makes it more reasonable.

Are tesco day out token not valid for 6 months?

Yes six months for the standard ticket.

If anyone is planning on going between March 23rd and 30 April 2013, Tesco are doing a special ticket for only £5 of Clubcard points.
This only includes the castle.

We thought it was good value for money before they added the dungeons & "Merlin's" tower. Since when did Warwick have anything to do with the legend of King Arthur though? I remember visiting Warwick Castle loads of times as a kid & Merlin's tower was the ghost tower then, with the record playing that would sometimes get stuck - not very spooky! lol

Just thought it's worth mentioning that the dungeon ticket is not for the actual dungeon - you can still go down there for free. Also, the extra areas that are now open include being able to walk along the ramparts at the front of the castle - some amazing views from up there.

Horrible histories event on during the school holidays too!

Is this offer still available? It no longer mentions the dungeon and merlin included in the price.
