We went to see the castle and the classic car show on Saturday 16th June 2018. Thoroughly nice day all round. Buildings are very interesting and the staff were great. Bought a bottle of mead which was very good!

Very interesting castle having been built over quite a period of time with different parts added. Visited on a number of occasions by Elizabeth the 1st.

Having visited this castle before we didn't use the audio guides but instead just enjoyed a walk amongst the ruins of this wonderful castle. The shop and cafe are both very good too.

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
