Getting to the event

Unfortunately there is no public parking available at the event due to space restrictions and roads around the castle will be closed for crowd safety. Therefore please walk or use public transport wherever possible.

This year, the park and ride has not been possible so if you are traveling to Kenilworth for the event, we suggest people park at a local railway station and get the train or use local bus services

If you still wish to drive, please allow plenty of time as it will be difficult to find parking close by. Public car parks in the town will be full early in the day. If using on-street parking, you may need to park a reasonable walk from the entrance. Please ensure you park considerately and note that police and parking enforcement officers will be active in the town on the evening.

Please see Getting to the Fireworks Gala for further information.

Bonfire night: placed as one of the top five displays in the UK by Visit England

Kenilworth Castle has a past dotted with royal connections, strategic fortifications and religious links. Once again, like many of England’s castles, it came to rack and ruin in the 17th century however it remained of great interest, even having its own guidebook in the 18th century.
