Campsites near Warwick guide

Overview

Warwick is located in the West Midlands region of central England, just south-east of Birmingham and near the world-famous birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon. Indeed, it shares a river with Shakespeare’s town, the River Avon, on the banks of which sits the imposing Warwick Castle, the city’s most popular tourist attraction. Campers can find places to pitch a tent, park a caravan, or stay in a cabin or safari-style tent within the town and in the surrounding area, which is dotted with historic villages and farmland. Warwick is also well-situated for visiting the Cotswolds, a scenic area south of the town.

Where to go

Birmingham

England’s second-largest city, Birmingham is less than an hour’s drive north of Warwick, making the Warwick area a handy place to stay for day trips into Birmingham, whether to see a concert or to stock up on supplies. Camping options within Birmingham city itself are limited, but there are many places to stay on the outskirts of the city, where the urban sprawl gives way to villages and farmland.

Stratford-upon-Avon

A short drive south-west of Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon is a famous little town that’s a must-visit for anyone interested in English literature and drama. Campers can pitch a tent (or bring their caravan) to a riverside caravan park and cycle through the town, stopping at the many Shakespeare-related attractions, including Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s House, and theatres.

The Cotswolds

Around an hour’s drive south of Warwick you’ll find the start of the Cotswolds, a large scenic area of villages and rolling farmland that’s a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Parts of the Cotswolds fall in Warwickshire, although the large area spreads over several counties. There are many places to camp in the Cotswolds, with farmstays, yurts, safari-style tents, and quirky cabins among the offerings.

When to go

Warwick experiences cold winters with occasional snow, and mild summers with long days. The best time to camp in Warwickshire is the warmer months, between May and September, when camping in a tent or unheated vehicle would be comfortable. Many caravan parks close for the winter season, although those with accommodation in warmer, more permanent structures sometimes operate year-round.
