Take a tour through Shakespeare country with us as we meander along the river Avon. Pause to enjoy the reflection and splendor of Warwick Castle’s towers, conservatories, and its classic blend of Architecture and Nature. Warwick’s crenellations, towers, and medieval arched windows have inspired the cabling in this pattern, while the lacework recalls the blurred reflection of the castle in the peaceful waters of the river. Adorn with an elegant shawl pin for the perfect finishing touch.
