A Preview - Kenilworth

Last week I had lunch with a good friend who lives in Kenilworth (very near Coventry).  I asked her if there were any thatched cottages where she lives.  She said, 'Yes'.  And there is a castle too.  So today I got in the car and in about 15 minutes this is what I found.  A street full of thatched cottages on the right :).



Above are the shops and cottages on Castle Hill.
Turn around and you will see
Kenilworth Castle on Castle Road.



I took loads of photos but wasn't really happy with many of them because the sky was white.  It was warm out but very hazy.  I visited Kenilworth Castle years ago and simple do not remember all those great buildings to explore.  Can't wait to get back!

Oh yay, you made it to Kenilworth! It's been over a year here, what lovely memories (we were attending a wedding:). I love that beautiful street. We stayed up the road at Milsoms Hotel, across the terrific Virgins & Castle pub:)

Lovely report- your area is all quite new to me so always delighted to find out more Lauren. Maybe one day I will explore it as well in person ;-)

Thank you once again, friends. I was amazed when I visited here, especially finding some more thatched houses. I will share one on Thursday.

Lulu - I did think of you when I ventured into Kenilworth. I recall you have been there too.

Chrissy - I'll meet you for coffee :).
