Kenilworth Castle would have got 5 stars if it had better toilet facilities, which let it down badly. We visited on Easter Sunday and it was not overly busy but toilet queues were horrendous as there is only 1 ladies facility with just 2 toilets!! I dread to think what it's like on a busy day. Castle itself is smazing!

Great day out and reasonably priced compared to some “ places of visit “ ! Lots to see and do! Cater very well for children and lots of grassed areas to have a picnic coupled with the on site cafe and picnic tables. All in all a great day out !

Fabulous afternoon exploring the ruins and the surrounding countryside. Steeped in history amazing place to visit.

Beautiful castle and gardens. Amazing an event was on reenacting.
