About this walk

From medieval fortress to Elizabethan palace, Kenilworth Castle has been at the centre of England's affairs for much of its 900 year history. Today, you can scale the heights of the tower built to woo Queen Elizabeth I and marvel at the mighty Norman keep. Explore the exhibition in the Gatehouse, and imagine the majesty of the Great Hall playing host to medieval monarchs and early Tudor kings. The Castle dog admit dogs, but inside the grounds they do have to be kept on leads at all times. However, if you prefer to stay outside of the castle grounds, there are lovely off-lead walks outside of the castle (especially Millennium Way - and there's a great dog friendly pub across the road called The Queen & Castle.
