Inspired by an off-the-cuff remark I made in another thread, I thought I would actually start this thread off.
Please share your favourite castle (or Mediaeval Abbey, Friary, or Priory), if possible with a picture and saying a little bit about it.
I will kick off with Corfe Castle. A picturesque ruin in Dorset (belonging to the National Trust), and as a bonus can be reached by steam train from Swanage with one of the finest 'railway views' in Britain! A good view from the castle as well
I have visited most of the castles in the UK and i think that they each have their own charms. I live near Windsor and so I am rather partial to that one as it is still a lived in royal castle and the Tower of London is also a favourite as I love the ravens there.
I like the Tower of London too - it's just so expensive to go around it.
