I attended a Halloween event at the castle. The evening was excellent and was very popular. This meant that there remained many people queuing to attend the different events when the evening was due to close. Rather than turn people away, the event organisers continued...More

Beautiful place, the best thing about today was the story telling, both myself and children really enjoyed the performer and the stories it warmed up our chilly visit and would not only highly recommend but would return based on that alone.

Kenilworth is a lovely town with some beautiful buildings. The castle is well worth a visit even if you just have a walk around.

Biased as a local resident!! We have had many great days as a family with young children (primary school age). Lots to explore and an interesting exhibition. Safe place for children to explore and play. English Heritage have some fantastic special days.

I imagined as there wasn't actually a castle to go into it would not be interesting but I was wrong, the ruins are extensive and you can imagine the layout and what life was like quite easily. There was an audio guide which was very...More
