Jack Price 10PMA How accurate is the guidebook information about Kenilworth Castle? The guidebook has a lot of information that is also in the source booklet that we have had provided, I am also going to use the knowledge of my visit to Kenilworth and some other books to get a wide variety of information.

"Midland England has but few early magnificent castles apart from those at Kenilworth and Warwick." ...read more.

In the guidebook it tells us that "the attacking army would use battering rams to bash down the main doors" So in conclusion the guidebook is very accurate, it has lots of information and it is easy to tell that Ken Osborne (editor) did a lot of research into the history of Kenilworth Castle and got his information from lots of different sources. ...read more.
