With Warwick Castle’s new Zog Play and Stay overnight package, little dragons can delight in the newly launched Zog and the Quest for the Golden Star trail by day, and by night hear all about the brave dragon’s adventures with a cosy storytime - which includes a special visit from Zog himself.
Every evening guests at the Castle’s Knight’s Village can enjoy exclusive entertainment including battling knights, archery lessons and now, a brand-new storytime experience perfect for winding down before bed. Children can hear all about Zog’s adventures with Madame Dragon, Princess Pearl and Sir Gadabout the Great, as one of the Castle’s brave knights or captivating princesses tells the dragon’s tail. As well as storytime, children can delight in an appearance from Zog himself before heading back to their Lodge or Glamping Tent to find special Zog goodies to take home.
Nestled in the Castle grounds alongside the River Avon, a stay at the Knight’s Village allows guests to extend their Castle experience in cosy wooden Lodges or, from 30 April, luxury King’s Tents as glamping starts to return.
Each self-contained Lodge comes complete with its own private terrace and medieval-inspired decor throughout, sleeps up to five or seven people, and has a private bathroom. King’s Tents sleep up to four people comfortably and feature medieval style thrones with a large table, a four-poster bed, chess board and suit of armour. Being Glamping Tents, they include all the necessary modern comforts like in-tent power, Wi-fi and comfy beds, as well as use of communal toilet facilities. All Knight’s Village stays include complimentary car parking, a hearty breakfast and a day’s entry to the Castle, where guests can explore the new Zog trail.
Based on the best-selling books by author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, the new trail features five fun lessons from Madame Dragon’s school to enthrall children as they try out awesome roars, capture a princess and soar high without their feet ever leaving the ground. Collecting a stamp for each completed task, the final challenge sees children join Sir Gadabout’s school for ambitious knights to collect their very own golden star, before they head off to meet Zog himself for a photo.
Guests can also explore the Castle’s 64 acres of grounds and gardens, winding their way through the Horrible Histories® Maze, visiting the feathered residents of the Peacock Garden and marvelling at the mighty Trebuchet. Having spent the day exploring, retiring to The Knight’s Village offers a truly unique way to spend the ‘knight’.
