Situated in the green heart of Warwickshire is the historic town of Kenilworth.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the rolling hills of Abbey Fields and enjoy long walks throughout the Castle grounds and beyond. From medieval fortress to Lancastrian palace, Kenilworth Castle has been at the centre of England’s affairs for much of its 900-year history.  The ruins of Kenilworth Castle are a must see and The Elizabethan Gardens complement the visitor experience nicely.

Long walks and relaxing strolls are a great way to unwind, and you’ll never be too far from the countryside. There are four local nature reserves in Kenilworth, providing wonderful places of tranquillity and unchanged scenery.

When you explore the Old Town area of Kenilworth, you will discover beautiful architecture, superb restaurants and specialist shops. For a further range of shops and places to eat and drink, Warwick Road runs through the newer part of the town. The traditional weekly market is held here every Thursday in Abbey End and provides local, fresh produce.

Kenilworth is a beautiful place to stay with a variety of accommodation all within walking distance of the town centre.

The surrounding areas of Warwick and Leamington are easily accessible by car, bus or train. A trip to Stoneleigh Abbey one of England’s most historic family estates with connections to Jane Austin, is not to be missed.

There is also great motorway access to Birmingham, therefore providing a convenient stay for visitors to the NEC.

At Christmas time, residents are treated to a choice of two Christmas light switch on events. Both provide hot food, music, children’s entertainment and seasonal delights.

The AccessAble audit of the town will provide vital information for those with specific requirements when visiting a new place. Kenilworth is also Dementia Friendly, through facilities such as a dementia café and drop in centre.
