Topic: UK Members - Best castle to stay overnight in?
Message: Posted by: Chris H (Jul 6, 2009 08:29PM)
Heya,

We're heading back to the UK in a couple of months, and my girlfriend is really keen to stay in a castle over night. She wanted to do it last time we were there (April - June 2008), but we just didn't get around to it. I'm not even sure what classifies as a castle to be honest, but I thought I might try and get it organised now for her upcoming birthday (mid August). Can anyone recommend a nice place?

Cheers,

Chris

I think if it has Castle in the name, it's a castle.

Well, that's settled then.

I'm only kidding. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd still love to hear them.

As many guessed my ancestors lived in an English castle. Okay, it was in the basement, well, dungeon, and they were tied up, but still....

I've found one that looks amazing, but it's hundreds of miles from anywhere that we're going to be. Might have to work on that.

I saw this in my local newspaper just last week. You might find it of interest:

Tell her to take all your money, get dolled up, and pick up some royal dude, a castle worker would be fine, and she likely will get an invite to stay the night.

I make it a rule to never stay in a castle unless the word 'Satans' is in the name some where. Oh, do go to the torture museum in London if you can get in.
