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