Warwick Castle's Newly Restored Cedar Drawing Room

Warwick Castle's Newly Restored Cedar Drawing Room

Forge your own piece of history by dining in the dramatic surroundings of the lavish Cedar Drawing Room at Warwick Castle.

On Monday 12th October 2015, a five week restoration project began to reinvigorate the Cedar Drawing Room. Over the last 345 years, dirt and general wear and tear left the ceiling in a fairly poor condition; however, with an investment of over £50,000 from Merlin Entertainments, the room has been transformed back to its post-civil war condition replicating its 1670s style. One of the main features of the room is the gleaming chandeliers, which were taken down and deep cleaned for the first time in over a decade. Now like never before, they emit boundless amounts of light, illuminating the splendour of their surroundings.

Aaron Manning, Head of Historical Interpretation at the Castle stated ‘Restoration work highlights Warwick Castle’s continuous commitment to preserving the State Rooms to their true glory’.

Over the last 300 years, the Cedar Drawing Room has been used to welcome visitors, hold evening festivities and, most famously, hold lavish costume balls attended by Daisy, Countess of Warwick and her high society friends. Now, for the first time ever, you too can dine in the grand opulence of this unique venue, set on the estate nestled within the stunning surroundings of Warwick Castle.
