Kenilworth Castle

Last weekend I had the most beautiful day at Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire. It’s a stunning ruin with centuries of history and my kind of photographer’s paradise. Here are some of my favourite Kenilworth Castle facts:

  • The castle’s origins date back to 1120
  • It was once surrounded by a huge man-made lake
  • It was a medieval fortress which was later turned into a pleasure palace
  • Parts of it were deliberately destroyed in 1650 after the English Civil War

One of my favourite things about it today is that staircases have been installed in some of the taller buildings so you can get all the way to the top, and see the castle really up close, and experience views that stretch for miles.
