Kenilworth Castle and Elizabetan Garden family day out.
This post is about our family adventures at Kenilworth Castle and Elizabetan Gardens.
This is an English Heritage site and is full of History from the Tudor times. The Elizabetan gardens were full of colour when we visited in April. There are a lot of places to play hide and seek with the boys and the place with it's wall and ruins is full of charm.
As mentioned on the English Heritage site:
"Kenilworth Castle is one of the great historical sites of the United Kingdom. First built in the 1120s and a royal castle for most of its history, it was expanded by King John, John of Gaunt and Henry V. In 1563 Elizabeth I granted it to her favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, who converted the castle into a lavish palace fit to entertain his queen.
Although the castle’s fortifications were dismantled in 1650, many of the buildings remain unaltered since Elizabeth I’s reign, and the spectacular ruins reveal much of Kenilworth’s medieval and Tudor past. "
Above I have made a compilation of the photos and videos I took at the Castle to showcase our family day out and below I have prepared a selection of some of the best photos I took of my two boys and the place on the day. Hope you enjoy the video and the photos will entice you to visit this amazing place.😍
