Kenilworth Castle is owned by English Heritage and has a good car park. Access is relatively easy and there are facilities on site, including a good cafe and shop. The gardens are well maintained and there is a lot of staff support available for visitors.
Wingfield Manor is run by English Heritage and privately owned. Access is only by pre-booked and pre-paid tours, you will need good footwear and there are no facilities on site, so take a bottle of water and have a toilet break before going on site. Lots of walking and climbing of stairs. Excellent guides. Parking is on a main road layby, suitable for about 15 cars off road, and you will have to cross the busy road to gain access to the site.
