The academic year is coming to an end and it’s once again time for the annual EMREM trip! This time we will be visiting Kenilworth Castle!
Here’s what English Heritage has to say about it:
The vast medieval fortress of Kenilworth Castle is one of the largest historic visitor attractions in the West Midlands and one of the most spectacular castle ruins in England.
A brilliant day out for the whole family (or an eager crowd of medievalists and early modernists), Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire is set in vast grounds perfect for exploring.
The ruins are best known as the home of Robert Dudley, the great love of Queen Elizabeth I. Dudley created an ornate palace here to impress his beloved Queen in 1575.
The newly re-created Elizabethan Garden, lost for 400 years, is now open to visitors once more. A paradise for garden lovers, wander through this sumptuous landscape as Queen Elizabeth I would have done herself.
We will be making our way to Kenilworth with the aid of public transport and shall be meeting at 10.00 am on 16 June at New Street station to take the train to Coventry (approx. 20 min) and then from there the X17 bus to Kenilworth (approx. 15 min).
If you do have a car, however, can you please let us know as we might be able to drive there if we have enough cars!
