Enjoy a great day out in Warwickshire at Kenilworth Castle and Elizabethan Garden. One of the largest historic attractions in the West Midlands, the whole family will enjoy exploring the spectacular castle ruins.  The ruins are best known as the home of Robert Dudley, the great love of Queen Elizabeth I. Dudley created an ornate palace here to impress his Queen in 1575.  Follow in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth I in the authentically recreated Elizabethan Garden. Lost to the world for over 400 years, it is now open to visitors once more. Wander through carved arbours and marvel at the bejewelled aviary and marble fountain. 

There are often costumed characters around the grounds and there are complimentary children's audio tours available.  Children will love exploring the ruins which include ramparts, dungeons, dozens of nooks and crannies to hide in and hills to roll down.  There is a lovely cafe and plenty of outside space for picnics.

Car parking is refunded on admission except for Bank Holidays and certain special event days.  Please note that parts of the castle are not suitable for pushchairs.
