Kenilworth Castle - Part 2

Ruins of Leicester's Building

Dating to the 1500s.  Intended to house important guests like Queen Elizabeth, the building was lavishly furnished and included chimneys, a recent innovation based on ancient Roman technology.

Leicester's Gatehouse

Since the Mortimer's Tower entrance was too narrow for coaches, the Earl of Leicester moved the castle entrance to here.
