12. Warwick Castle; Blue Peter Badgeholders

Whilst the Blue Peter badge free entry offer remains in place for 170+ visitor attractions around the UK, unfortunately Warwick Castle is no longing participating in this scheme. This new policy came into effect from 1 January 2017 and runs across the full range of Merlin Attractions. You can find out more details over at Important Changes for Blue Peter Badgeholders.

If you are planning to visit a number of Merlin Attractions, then it can be worth investing in a Merlin Pass.  Passholders can pick up entry to not only to Warwick Castle but popular settings such as LEGOLAND Windsor, Alton Towers & Madame Tussauds. A standard Merlin Pass will secure entry to Warwick Castle with additional charges for secondary attractions such as the Castle Dungeon, (no additional charges for Premium Passholders).  Worth noting that passholders currently need to pre-book entry to the attraction.

    Hiya, I want to take my boyfriend on a surprise trip for Warwick Castle. I do have an adults go free voucher from Kelloggs cereal. But what deal is the best offer, as I’ve seenif you pre-book there are offers on too.Thanks.

    • The best Warwick Castle ticket price tends to be the 2 for 1 voucher offer as this effectively offers you both a half price ticket. This voucher can only be used on the day against full price tickets and not in conjunction with online ticket offers. It doesn’t include entry to the Castle Dungeons but you can pay for entry to this on the day if this is something you want to include in your day, (best to book early on your day at the castle to ensure availability). There are discounts on online tickets of up to 30% if you book online in advance and these do come with a rainy day guarantee, (a free return visit if the weather turns sour on you – check t&c’s for further details) and does mean you don’t have to queue for tickets at the ticket booths. You can add castle dungeons entry to your ticket too. However online savings don’t necessarily offer you the best savings.

  2. have cadburys free ticket voucher with one paying adult price available until 32.07.2018 Does this include a visit to Warwick castle and are there any dates not included in offer thankyou

      Hi Sandra, try the Kellogg’s 2 for 1 vouchers on cereal bars & cereals that are valid at Warwick Castle during 2017. Whilst they only offer access to the castle & grounds, (not the Castle Dungeon) it does offer value for money for a day out at Warwick Castle, Liz

  4. Cadburys are also doing a 2for1 offer.

    Hi came for a visit on the 20/4/2016 haveing put your postcode in my sat nav it guided me to you car park to witch I paid £10 I found out later there was a another car park witch was £6 was not very happy about this there was no signage to tell us about this

    • Hi Gary, whilst we are independent of Warwick Castle, (topdogdays simply provides information to help you enjoy a day out), I am sorry to hear that you parked up in the more expensive car park. I have to say Warwick Castle is not the easiest place to find with a sat nav and I’ve certainly struggled to find the standard parking on previous trips too, Liz

  6. Michael Barnes says:


    Can’t find the 2 for 1 voucher for Warwick Castle. Can you send the link please?


    • Hi Michael, I don’t have a link for an online voucher for Warwick Castle but you can easily pick one up on promotional packets of Kellogg’s cereals. Each voucher offers 1 free entry when accompanied by a full price adult/child so ensure you collect enough vouchers to cover your party. Hope that helps, Liz

  7. What a helpful item.thanks.

    • Hi Frank, thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. Always good to know that the Warwick Castle information was helpful. You’ve just made my day!

  8. Hi there,

    I am coming to Warwick Castle with my friends this Saturday, which is 5/12/2015. I heard about that we could use our train tickets to buy 2-for-1 ticket. Is it true? Do I have to bring anything else except the train ticket? Thank you

    • Hi, yes you can use the 2 for 1 voucher from daysoutguide at Warwick Castle. Simply download the voucher and present with valid train tickets on the day of your visit, (the voucher is valid until 31 December). One voucher can be used per person & per transaction. This voucher can only be used against full on the gate price tickets purchased on the day at Warwick Castle and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or online discount. If purchasing a return train ticket, ensure you keep both train tickets to present at the ticket booths.

  9. Hi, we are planning a visit on Halloween, 31/10/14. Don’t yet have any 2-for-1 vouchers which we use, any idea who is doing them at the mo? (Kellogs/newspapers..?)
    Also can you pay for the full price ticket with your nectar card?

    • Hi Kes, the Kelloggs Grown Ups Go Free vouchers are valid at Warwick Castle on 31 October and are readily available in the shops. All 2 for 1 vouchers for Warwick Castle offer you 1 free standard entry to the Castle & the grounds, (when accompanied by a full paying person) but does not include entry to the Dungeons & Tower – you will need to pay an additional fee for each of these attractions. Alternatively, I see that Warwick Castle are also offering a discounted late night entry ticket too from 5pm.

  10. Hi, I note that a promotion ran for £1 entry for children with waist length hair, (read in your email above) can you tell me is this likely to run in September this year? I have two sun tickets and would llike to take 2 of my daughters friends who just happen to have waist length hair.

    • Hi Bernie, this was a great deal when it ran quite some time ago now & unfortunately this is not one that Warwick Castle have run again since:(

  11. Hi does anyone know if you can use 2 for 1 tickets at warwick castle for tickets including the castle dungeon or can it only be used for castle entry. I’m trying to work out if it is cheaper to use the vouchers or book a week in advance for 5 .
    Many thanks Linda

    • Hi Linda, unfortunately 2 for 1 vouchers for Warwick Castle will only gain you the standard entry to the setting so you will need to pay the additional charge for the castle dungeons.

  12. hi,I own the Tesco voucher 2 for 1 ticket and dont understand what to do when I want to order it online.There is no option for these vouchers online.Is ok to purchase these ticket at the Warwick Castle with the voucher or no more ticket are sold at the day to visit?I plan to go with my hubby there on Sathurday .
    Thank you

    • Hi Katarina, simply print out the 2 for 1 voucher for Warwick Castle and take it with you on the day of your visit. You will need to be accompanied by a full paying adult & cannot take advantage of any discounted or concessionary ticket for the full paying adult. Enjoy:)

  13. What a great website, I have 4 children and wanting to make their school break enjoyable as well as memorable. Thank you xoxo

    • Thanks Angela for taking the time to get in touch & for such lovely feedback. It is always good to know that others are searching for days out on a budget too.
