Kenilworth Castle & Elizabethan Gardens
Our Enchanted events have proved very popular and there are limited tickets available. We recommend booking tickets now to avoid disappointment.
This Christmastime join with friends and family to explore the grounds of Kenilworth Castle after dark, as we open up a winter fairytale of light, colour and sound. Strings of lanterns laced through the boughs of trees and fairy lights behind leaves will lead you along an enchanting trail into a magical wonderland.
With twinkling paths to show the way, relive the romance of Queen Elizabeth I and Robert Dudley as you approach the castle illuminated with colour. Light displays will reignite the castle's royal past, while the sounds and scents of a banquet drift through the castle walls. From the Great Hall, follow streams of festive lights towards our Mistletoe Garden, where bright red holly berries decorate the trees and an arbour glitters against the night sky.
And the experience doesn't end when the trail does. Emerging into the scene of a traditional fairground, you'll find whirling teacups to carry you back to times gone by. There will be plenty to enjoy besides - from mince pies, toasted marshmallows and mulled wine, to a spot of heritage-inspired Christmas shopping.
So get wrapped up warm, with camera at hand and tastebuds ready to be indulged and make the most of this sparkling event. It promises to be a popular evening.
There is parking on site for blue badge holders only. However there is a free shuttle bus operating from outside the Holiday Inn, Kenilworth. Please park in the town centre car parks and the nearest car park is Abbey End.
