In the heart of rural Warwickshire, Kenilworth is a beautiful little town with a big history. This tour is a stroll through English history, from leafy parkland to the remains of the medieval abbey gatehouse to grand Victorian town houses to picture perfect thatched cottages from a bygone age. And it culminates with the magnificent ruins of one of England's finest castles. Discover the characters and stories that shaped Kenilworth, learn how one man used it to impress his beloved Queen and see for yourself why the town, its castle and its rural setting have been inspiring writers and artists for centuries.
