Medieval Trips To Kenilworth Castle

School Trips @ English Heritage

Home / Midlands / Warwickshire

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 learning opportunities across the curriculum are endless.
