Kenilworth is an attractive historical town in the English county of Warwickshire. Kenilworth grew up around the now-ruined castle that forms striking centrepiece to the town, notable for being the seat of power of revolutionary baron Simon de Montfort.

Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

A well-signposted exit from the A46 between Warwick and Coventry takes you onto the A452, a grand designation for a busy, windy road that makes its way through the town centre. The A452 is the main road north out of town for travellers heading from Leamington

By bus[edit]

Kenilworth is fairly well served by local buses, particularly from the nearby Leamington Spa and Warwick.
