Warwick and Kenilworth Castles

 

Warwick Castle is a day out in itself and has many activities and events scheduled through the year. 

 

Liz and I found Kenilworth Castle both fascinating and evocative.  It was the home of Dudley, the great love of Elizabeth I.  Part of the castle was built for one of Elizabeth’s yearly processions.  It is believed Dudley built it for her in the hope he could woo her into marriage. Steel stairs and walkways allow you to go right to the top of the castle. Go to: www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/kenilworth-castle/
