We had a lovely day strolling around the grounds of this castle and the girls found another Easter egg hunt to occupy them selves. We had a burger from the on sight BBQ which was quit reasonably priced.

We spent a wonderful morning exploring the castle ruins, gatehouse and cafe. The displays are very informative and what’s left of the ruins are stunning. We had the added advantage of a lovely warm day. Good value for money and very educational if you enjoy...More

We really enjoyed a couple of hours at Kenilworth. It's visually stunning and a fun space for children to explore (ours are 9 & 11). They did the Easter trail - well worth £1.50 each for them to do and get a chocolatey prize at...More

Although a mostly a ruin the castle is still very good as you can explore lots of places & imagine how it would have been. Some nice walks too.

Used to come here a lot when our boys were younger, especially when there was a re-enactment event on. Haven’t been for almost 10 years so it was a joy to find we got as much pleasure visiting with a grown up son as when...More

We went on a lovely sunny day, but this is not the venue to go to in bad weather because it is all in the open with no shelter. Having said that it is pretty spectacular to look at, and the essential audio guide is...More

The car park belongs to Kenilworth Council. They are the ones who patrol it and ticket people although the castle staff keep it clean and litter free. If you put £2 in that covers you all day and if you are going into the... More
