WARWICK Castle is closing the gates to visitors until further notice.

The major tourist attraction has taken the decision to close both the castle and Knight’s Village overnight accommodation from 4pm today until further notice.

A statement on the website reads: “Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Warwick Castle and Knight’s Village as a precautionary measure from Friday 20th March at 4pm, until further notice.

“While we always look forward to welcoming visitors, we believe that this decision is the right thing to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and guests.

“If you have pre-booked a short break or Warwick Castle tickets, please do not travel.”
