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
