KENILWORTH CASTLE

KENILWORTH CASTLE
KENILWORTH CASTLE

Once a royal castle, and a favourite residence of Lancastrian kings.  But Kenilworth is associated by the majority of people with the Elizabethan era, when it was owned by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, the queen's favourite.  Though the castle is mostly ruined now, some rooms can still be seen, together with period fittings and furnishings.  The site is enormous and impressive, and now includes an Elizabethan garden.
