Kenilworth Castle, The Stables
Kenilworth Castle, The Stables
Kenilworth Castle, is one of Britainís largest and most impressive historic sites. It began as a mediaeval fortress and became an Elizabethan Palace best known as the home of Robert Dudley, the great love of Queen Elizabeth I. Dudley, Earl of Leicester, took possession of the castle in 1563. He then lavished fortunes on converting it into a great Renaissance 'prodigy house', designed to receive the queen and her close servants on her visits to Kenilworth in 1572 and 1575 during their ceremonial 'progresses' around her realm.

The 16th century stable now houses the cafť and an exhibition charting the royal and baronial interest in Kenilworth from the 12th to the 17th centuries.
