Over the weekend, we visited Warwick Castle for a fun-filled day out to watch Mike the Knight’s new movie. Warwick Castle is situated in the heart of Britain’s motorway network, with easy access from London by car and by train.
Our journey started at London Marylebone, where we boarded on a Chiltern Railways train to Warwick, we had a pleasant journey and I was glad to see sockets on the train – ideal to charge tablets and phones, to keep little ones entertained during the journey.
Once we arrived at Warwick Castle, we watched a preview screening of Mike the Knight movie, Journey to Dragon Mountain. In the action packed adventure, the King needs to return the treasured crystal jewel that was stolen from the dragon of Dragon Mountain.
As Glendragon is in danger, it is the King’s mission to return it safely, but the whole family got involved in the quest, together the King, Mike and Evie form Team Family Glendragon, and they learnt that they could overcome obstacles when working together and helping each other.
It is such a beautiful movie, little man loved watching it, and then talking on camera about the movie and his experience at Warwick Castle, meeting Mike the Knight and playing around the castle.
After the movie, we had the opportunity to meet and greet Mike the Knight. He will be visiting Warwick Castle this September, on 20th and 21st, 27th and 28th September.
You will find a host of chivalrous activities and a multitude of mediaeval missions, including Galahad’s Gallop, Jester Zone, Build Glendragon Castle, The Blacksmith’s Horse Shy, Colour and Craft Tent, Target Test, Sparkie and Squirts Egg Hunt and Evie’s Wizard Workshop. Little man’s favourite was Evie’s Wizard Workshop, full of tricks and magic.
During the Mike the Knight event, visitors are asked to take selfies with the Dragon, and upload on Warwick Castle Twitter and Facebook page, using the hashtag #DragonSelfie. We both enjoyed taking our selfies and uploading online – you might have spotted them on our Twitter feed over the weekend.
One of little man’s highlights was exploring the castle and visiting the state rooms, he particularly enjoyed joining the tea party. We had a fabulous day out at Warwick Castle, meeting Mike the Knight, taking part in the activities and enjoying the castle. If you have a Mike the Knight fan, make sure you visit during a weekend in September.
