Kenilworth Caste, a site of intrigue and passion and one of King Henry VIII's favourite castles in England. Once the seat of John of Gaunt, the home of Robert Dudley, and the favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, Kenilworth Castle is now the stage for your love story. As you celebrate, centuries on, you can imagine Dudley lavishly entertaining his Queen with feasting, music and dancing, or perhaps stealing a secret kiss in the flower gardens.

Event Spaces

Wedding ceremonies and receptions take place in and around the Gatehouse, which stands beside a charming topiary-filled parterre garden, close to the recreated Elizabethan Garden with its fountain, arbours and ‘bejewelled’ aviary.

We had the most fantastic wedding reception at Kenilworth Castle in July 2016 and the team at the Castle, led by Louise McCannon, had a huge part to play in making our wedding day run absolutely perfectly. We could not have found a more brilliant team and count ourselves very lucky to have been supported by such a wonderfully friendly and professional group of people.

Our wedding at Kenilworth Castle was truly magical - better than we could have ever imagined. The staff could not have been more helpful in helping us create our dream wedding. The venue itself is stunning, all our guests were thoroughly impressed and our wedding photos are striking as a result. Overall, we simply can’t recommend a wedding at Kenilworth Castle enough.
