Many of the streets in Warwick's old town still have attractive 17th- and 18th-century buildings that will appeal to tourists. These include the Court House with its Georgian ballroom, Landor House, and the lovely Shire Hall with its octagonal tower lantern. The West Gate has been retained from the old town walls, and guilds have assembled in the early-Gothic St. James' Chapel since 1383.
Warwick Castle is a massive battlement-crowned fortress reached via the former stable yard and adjoining moat. An extensive area of parkland boasts a number of gardens, among them a peacock reserve and rose garden. The inner courtyard is entered through the imposing Gatehouse (1350), and this is where visitors first notice the castle''s walls and towers, ranging in height up to 131 feet. The fortifications date from the 16th century.
