Kenilworth Castle was just fabulous. The audio guide was very informative along with the signage and exhibitions, but what was just great was being able to just wander and explore at your own pace, going into the many nooks and crannies all around. The children visiting were loving the freedom of this place too and I am sure their imagination... More

I was staying in Kenilworth for a work's Christmas party and decided to get up early and take some pictures of the castle. At this time of year, the castle is closed every day except for weekends, but you can get quite to the castle entrance and there are plenty of pathways and roads around the whole structure. I was...

We arrived at 3.15 after a long journey to kenilworth for a family reunion . The castle closes at 4pm understandably as it gets dark early I cannot understand how the price of 10.00 an adult remains right up to 3.30, that is so unacceptable for the national trust, there were seven of us which would of cost us 70.00...

We have ben visiting Kenilworth Castle for many years and it's always one of the more interesting and enjoyable visits. There has been sympathetic restoration and additions to the Castle. Lots of very good special events and always come away with a smile.

An excellent place to stroll, take time to ponder times gone by, and learn at the same time. Lot of character, good access, good all round. A lot of children, but better than them playing on playstations or computers. The grounds and castle are excellent, well layed out and well informed leaflets and post marks take you through the history... More

My friends had been to Kenilworth before but wanted to experience the new metal staircase recently added to allow an appreciation of the view from the Queen's apartments. I love the colour of the stone used to build the castle, so warm.The Elizabethan Knot Garden was delightful. We were fortunate to have a sunny day, and enjoyed exploring all the... More

take a walk around the outside paths, then pay to go in and experience the castle. Many days have special events that are well worth attending.
