A short tourism video about Kenilworth in Warwickshire.

In centuries gone by, Kenilworth was at the centre of English power and politics due to the dominance of Kenilworth Castle.

Its believed that one of the first English Parliaments was held here.

Mentioned in the Doomsday book, the Castle was built soon after the Norman conquest of 1066.

It was later destroyed in 1649 by Oliver Cromwells forces to ensure it could not be used as a fortress again.

Today it is cared for by English Heritage and is regarding as one of the finest ruined castles in England.

The town also has some significant local landmarks including The Abbey Barn, St Nicholas Church and Abbey Fields.
