Visiting Medieval Britain
Medieval castles in Wales include Coch Castle, Denbigh Castle and Caernarfon Castle.
Medieval castles in Scotland include Castle of Mey, Hermitage Castle, Caerlaverock Castle.
Medieval castles in England include Alnwick Castle, Naworth Castle,
Many British medieval castles are on or near to the coast. Take, for example, Dunstanburgh Castle and Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland. Both are on the coast yet one is in ruins whilst the other intact and still lived in. Both of them command some of the most spectacular locations you could ever imagine for a medieval castle. Tourist accommodation in this area is plentiful and if you want a vacation rental (self catering) cottage that's extra special, there are some luxury Northumbrian cottages on hand to make your stay even more enjoyable.
Moving further north you are soon in Scotland, a country famous for its history including medieval history with the likes of William Wallace. Now there's a medieval folk hero worth talking and writing about - but that's for another time and another post!
