Mike the Knight at Warwick Castle

Little man is such a Mike the Knight fan, he has even done a Mike the Knight video a few months ago!

Last weekend, we were invited to Warwick Castle to celebrate the launch of the second series of Mike the Knight beginning on CBeebies in mid-July, followed by the release of the brand new DVD “Be a Knight, Do It Right!” on 29th July.

As soon as I mentioned to little man that we would be going to the Castle to see his favourite character Mike the Knight, he was all excited and started a countdown to the big day. The Mike the Knight attraction at Warwick Castle encourages children to follow Mike’s rallying cry of ‘Be a Knight, do it Right’ by engaging in a series of knightly activities and chivalrous deeds.

Although we have never been to Warwick Castle before, we had no troubles getting there. Warwick Castle is ideally-situated in the heart of Britain’s motorway network, with easy access from London.

We left home early morning to make the most of our day out, got a train from London Marylebone with Chiltern Railways and arrived at Warwick in around an hour and a half. The boys were playing during the train journey, so the time went by quickly.

Once we arrived at Warwick Castle, the kids were delighted with the activity-filled Mike the Knight experiences. Mike the Knight was available to greet knights-in-training throughout the day, along with themed entertainers and performers. Little man loved meeting Mike and having his photo taken.
