Encounter an Elizabethan legacy in Warwickshire

Kenilworth, Warwickshire

Discover 900 years of English history at Kenilworth Castle and Elizabethan Garden, a vast medieval fortress and spectacular castle ruins.

Set against the backdrop of rural Warwickshire and once boasting the finest architecture in Elizabethan England, Kenilworth Castle was the home of Robert Dudley, the great love of Queen Elizabeth I, and he transformed the palace and grounds so it was fit to receive his queen. 

Featuring arbours, fountains, an Aviary and a magnificent array of plants, this garden is breath-taking. Reconstructed to its original height, the terrace affords the best view of the garden and the landscape and rolling countryside beyond.

Complete your regal experience with a stay at Wroxall Abbey Hotel & Estate, once the country seat of Sir Christopher Wren.
