This English Heritage castle is a must for both UK visitors and world travellers. We have visited in high summer (not this year!) and yesterday on a cold windy day. The shop is excellent with friendly and helpful staff, and there are always foody samples! We love this castle ( well, we love all castles actually) - its history is... More

Kenilworth Castle is a lovely place to visit set in a peaceful spot at the edge of town. It was very busy when we visited and parking was difficult, we ended up back down in the town but it was a pleasant and picturesque walk to the castle and the parking was free. As with most EH sites it's a... More

Fantastic castle but the newly accessible Tower was closed due to high winds. Disappointing. We only wanted to see that. We are members of English Heritage but paying visitors should have been told before paying to go in. Overall a very worthwhile and good value place to visit. The Elizabethan Garden is filling out nicely

Kenilworth never disappoints. Our family are regular visitors. Oftensitting in the shadow of Warwick Castles splendor, this location in our opinion is far better value, informative and fun and dog lovers can take the pooch. Super for walkers of all levels too will love it, as lots of scenic public footpaths all around. Independent retails shops in the friendly, scenic... More

An amazing place! The best place for any Elizabethan fanatic to visit. I'd go back every day. In fact, can I live there please?

Bring your imagination, sturdy shoes and snacks. This is our favorite castle. You get to crawl over ruins and read 200 year old graffiti scraped into the walls. They've built up platforms that allows you to go to the upper stories of the ruins and you get amazing views of the countryside. Most importantly, there is a lot of Tudor... More

When I visited members of a historical society were dressed in costume and recreating life (including falconry and jousting displays) during the time the castle was in use.

Thus is the most amazing place to visit - we loved it and I would not hesitate to recommend Kenilworth Castle to anyone - fabulous for solo or family groups - lots to see, lots of history to learn - amazing buildings and ruins. The township of Kenilworth is also beautiful and worth staying around to explore as well. I... More

Out of this world. Had a great night with my now wife to be ;-) for only £10 we watched the most spectacular event ever. Absolutely breathtaking and a must see with the family. It's a round table event so check out the website.

We went for the annual display and were very happy. A very busy event that was well organised for all to enjoy. The display itself was fantastic. The music combined with a huge variety of fireworks was excellent. It was a fun evening.
