Great castle in a lovely town.

We visited Kenilworth on our last day on holiday in Warwickshire and the weather was kind for most of the day (we dodged into the Stables Tea Room when it did rain!). The... read more

We visited Kenilworth on our last day on holiday in Warwickshire and the weather was kind for most of the day (we dodged into the Stables Tea Room when it did rain!). The castle is large and has associations with home in Denbigh through Robert Dudley who was granted Kenilworth by Elizabeth 1, along with the lordships of Denbigh and... More

A great place for our young boys to explore. Complete with cafe, information, shop and toilets. Lots of open spaces for charging around. Nice gardens.

The nearest "traditional looking" castle to home, I took the youngest as he is still into Knights and Battles. Very easy to find on the south east corner of Kenilworth, however a Brown tourist sign is needed by the roundabout. Parking easy and at a cost of £2, knocks spots of Merlin's efforts in Warwick. Problem here only two ticket... More

Much more to do here than at first glance. The grounds are extensive and the restoration excellent. Lovely views of the surrounding countryside

I did not hold out much hope for this visit but I must say I was very impressed, the Archer that was doing a demonstration on the way in was excellent, the King maker Wax display was very well done and to top it off the interactive Ghost show was tops, (tip don't stand at the back).

Interesting ruins to explore and house to look around. Dog friendly too. Had a lovely cream tea from the cafe. Would definitely return if in the area

needed somewhere to spend a few hours on the way back home from a long weekend and didn't fancy the hustle of Warwick Castle so took a gamble! The first thing was the reasonable cost of parking at £2 per day! The castle itself is huge (for a ruin) and the walkways allowed you to climb the towers and ramparts... More

We spent a rainy afternoon at Kenilworth and really enjoyed it. Would love to go back when the weather was a bit nicer!

So a trip to the gift shop at the entrance to buy instead !! Perhaps a little more planning with... More

Lovely place for family and kids with small nice flower garden in front of castle. Most is ruins left there but definitely worth to come and have look.
