Warwick Ghosts – Alive
31st March - 28th October
Warwick Castle’s infamous Ghost Tower is once more transformed into a chilling live-action spook experience. Using a mix of live actors, sound, visual and lighting effects it literally brings the true story of Warwick’s most famous ghost to life as the tale of Sir Fulke Greville’s murder is recreated.
Warwick Ghosts – Alive is screamingly good fun but visitors are advised that its scary content may make it unsuitable for children under eight or anyone of a nervous disposition. An additional charge applies and pre-booking is advised.

Won't really be rushing back to Warwick though, seeing as its a place where people go to retire and die :roll: :P
72-year-old visitor has died after falling 15ft (4.5m) from a bridge into undergrowth at a castle.
Emergency crews were called to Warwick Castle on Sunday afternoon following reports the man, thought to be from Coventry, had fallen.
People attempted to resuscitate the man, who was believed to have suffered a heart attack. He was taken to hospital, but later died.
A spokeswoman for Warwick Castle said an investigation was under way.
She said it appeared the man had suffered a heart attack and fell into an area of undergrowth below the bridge.
The spokeswoman said that the health and safety of guests was the castle's "primary concern".
She added: "An immediate investigation has been launched into the incident and access to the area has been closed off.
"In accordance with our health and safety procedures the Health and Safety Executive has been informed.
"The management and staff of Warwick Castle would like to express their condolences to the family at this time."
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "Unfortunately, despite all of the efforts it was not possible to save him and he was confirmed dead shortly after arrival.
"We would like to pass on our thanks to the public, St John staff and the firefighters who assisted at the scene.
"The early intervention gave the man the best possible chance of survival."

There had been no indication previously that this was going to happen and was a huge shock to the cast – many who have been performing in the attraction for a number of years.
Also closing down is Dream of Battle which is expected to be turned into a “Dungeons style attraction” for 2009.
