Kenilworth Castle

The Privy Garden was created by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester to celebrate the visit of Queen Elizabeth in July 1575.

Walk through the Loggia on to the Terrace with its magnificent views over the garden.

The beds have been planted with flowers and herbs which would have been familiar to the Elizabethans including pinks, holly, wild strawberries, rosemary and various fruit trees.

The gardens were redeveloped in 2009 using a contemporary description of the garden as well as archaeological evidence.

Don’t miss the Edwardian garden near the Gatehouse.
