Want to know what you do when you are bored on a Sunday afternoon in England? You pack a picnic basket, hop in the car and visit a castle. You are guaranteed never to run out of options because there are literally dozens of them dotted amongst the countryside or even amongst the cities. My favourite thing to do when visiting them is to take a minute to shut everything out and imagine how many people passed over this bridge or brushed against this wall or stared at that painting… it just never gets boring for me. A few weeks ago we took a little road trip to Hever Castle, the childhood home of Ann Boleyn. The highlights of the castle include 2 mazes (one is a water maze which is sooo much fun), a beautiful rose garden and orchard, archery lessons, a moat and an absolutely terrifying room filled with ancient instruments of torture.
Have a lovely weekend all!
P.S – I didn’t realise that we weren’t meant to take pictures inside so I managed to nab one of the more modern living rooms (check out the beautiful ceiling).
