Britain By Car - A Motoring History

Warwick

The attractive and historic county town of Warwickshire.   Much of Warwick’s old medieval town was destroyed in a fire in 1694, but many of the Georgian buildings that were built following this remain today.  The town is situated in a relatively affluent area, with a number of well-established organisations and companies based close by.

Warwick Castle is located on the southern edge of the town.  Built in the 14th century on the site of a Norman castle, it is one of the few medieval fortresses in Britain still used as a residence.
