Attraction Information

The vast medieval fortress of Kenilworth Castle is one of the largest historic visitor attractions in the West Midlands, and one of the most spectacular castle ruins in England. A brilliant day out for the whole family, set in vast grounds perfect for exploring with the castle as dramatic backdrop.

Keniworth Castle has been at the centre of England's affairs for over 900 years, from medieval fortress to Elizabethan palace. Today, you can marvel at the mighty Norman keep, explore the exhibition at the Gatehouse, climb the tower built to woo Queen Elizabeth, and imagine the majesty of the medieval monarch and early Tudor kings in the Great Hall!

All families can use the children's audio tours, which are included in the admission price. There's also the Step Inside Activity Pack, with puzzles and activities for children to complete as they explore the castle.

The newly recreated Elizabethan Garden, lost for 400 years, is now open to visitors once more. A paradise for garden lovers, wander through this sumptuous landscape as Queen Elizabeth I would have done herself. Cool!
