For those who dream of spending the night in a fairytale Castle fit for Royalty, Warwick Castle has unveiled two magnificent Tower Suites appointed with bespoke furniture and fittings in the 14th century Caesar’s Tower, rooms familiar to generations of kings, queen and noblemen. Evoking the opulence of the Victorian era, the apartments – The Peacock Suite and The Rose Suite – offer guests the first opportunity in living memory to spend the night resplendent in their own private chamber at the Castle which enjoys a wealth of Royal connections.Each Suite is located on its own private floor of the 14th century Caesar’s Tower and comprises of an opulent bed chamber replete with four-poster bed in addition to contemporary en-suite facilities. All aspects of the accommodation, including the furniture and fabrics, have been designed and created specifically for this exceptional location and to compliment the mediaeval architecture which includes vaulted ceilings.
Geoff Spooner, General Manager at Warwick Castle, said: “Awakening in a hand-carved four-poster bed in a private Tower Suite is no longer a fairytale: we’re making our guests’ dreams come true whilst remaining faithful to the heritage of the Castle by ensuring the Suites are furnished with bespoke crafted items that resonate with their fully-restored surroundings. Spending the night in a Tower Suite will be a magical experience, memorable for years to come.”
Warwick Castle has provided generations of aristocracy and Royalty – including Anne Neville, the wife of Richard III, and the Earls of Warwick – with a comfortable home, while other notable guests over the centuries include Henry V, Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria. The rooms that have been restored to become the Tower Suites housed Edward IV during his enforced stay at the Castle in 1469, part of a plot by Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick to rule England. Most recently HRH The Prince of Wales visited the Castle in June 2014 to mark its 1,100th anniversary and enjoy Afternoon Tea in The State Dining Room.
The Castle, commanding an enviable position on the banks of the River Avon, is located at the heart of historic Warwick, a county town renowned for its mediaeval architecture and proximity to the birthplace of William Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon.
