  1. Castles! I’d love to visit Gu├ędelon, too. Recently, I’ve been watching the Secrets of Great British Castles presented by Dan Jones; Cardiff Castle’s now on my to-see list.

  2. What a fascinating post! As an American I haven’t had the opportunity to explore many castles that aren’t of the Disney variety, but oh how I would love to. I did get to visit Norwich castle about 15 years ago. Someday I’ll travel again. Sigh.

    • It is something that we can take for granted too easily. I live half an hour’s walk from what I believe are the second (possibly third) most complete medieval town walls in the country. Our castle is one that has disappeared, but the ruins of a couple of towers remain. There are also Roman and Saxon remains, but I know less about them.
