iVisit.... Kenilworth Castle

  • Kenilworth Castle Castle Green, off Castle Rd, Kenilworth Warwickshire, CV8 ING United Kingdom (map)

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.

For the first time in 350 years you can explore the full height of the tower built by Leicester to court Queen Elizabeth I.  Stand at floor level in the queen's private rooms and soak up the  same spectacular views that she enjoyed.

Experience a whole new perspective on what was one of Elizabethan England's finest buildings. The staircases and platforms take you 18 metres up into the tower, to the level of the fireplaces and windows built for the royal visit.

Glimpse the queen's private staircase, and the long gallery where she could have private time with her most intimate friends.  In 1575 these rooms were luxurious, elegant and flooded with light from enormous glass windows.
