The first thing a lot of people think about England is castles and medieval fortresses. But I know that’s very unlikely with the way the British jealously protect their heritage.
Despite England’s fame for castles, there aren’t actually that many that have survived intact. Not to mention the fact that a castle would cost millions upon millions of dollars to purchase!
I’ve decided to put together a list of my favorite castles in England (lists for Scotland and Wales are forthcoming).
The list is completely arbitrary based on my tastes.
I’ve only been to two of them myself (Windsor and Tower of London).
I must give credit where credit is due and I’d like to thank the Wikipedia for providing such fantastically interesting trivia!
Save for two, all the pictures are from wonderful photographers on Flickr who were willing to share their pictures.
It was a ton of fun to do the research for this post. Feel free to tell me about your favorite castles in the comments!

Warwick Castle was built by William the Conqueror in 1068 within or adjacent to Anglo-Saxon burh of Warwick.
It was used as a fortification until the early 17th century, when Sir Fulke Greville converted it to a country house.
It was owned by the Greville family, who became earls of Warwick in 1759, until 1978.
From 1088, the castle traditionally belonged to the Earl of Warwick, and it served as a symbol of his power.The castle was taken in 1153 by Henry of Anjou, later Henry II.It has been used to hold prisoners, including some from the Battle of Poitiers in the 14th century.Under the ownership of Richard Neville – also known as “Warwick the Kingmaker” – Warwick Castle was used in the 15th century to imprison the English king, Edward IV.
