- The state apartments housed Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603) during her visit of 1575. In the late 16th century Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, undertook a range of improvements, modernisations and refurbishments at Kenilworth Castle to bring it up-to-date with 16th century fashions. A section of curtain wall was demolished in order to construct a new three storey residential building in the south eastern part of the inner court and this provided accommodation for distinguished guests staying at the castle. Leicester's Building is built of stone and is rectangular in plan with a tower projecting from its south western corner which is thought to have contained a staircase. The three-storey building contained a suite of rooms on each floor consisting of a service room, a bedroom and a principal room facing east. Scheduled and Listed Grade I.
