I was born in England.
That's a yes! :)

Yes, when i was in Cape Town many years ago. It is now a museum.
Not since I was a child, but it's on the list of things I'm really longing to do in the next 20yrs.
Yes, a few of them. I visited Edinburgh Castle quite a few times while I lived there. It gives a magnificent view of the city below. I went to Neuschwannstein in Germany, which is the one they based the Disney castle on. It was bizarre, but kind of cool. Also Warrick Castle, which is more what I think of if I imagine a castle.
Jennifer - I'm from Edinburgh, but now living in Brisbane. Yes, the city views from the Esplanade of the Castle are quite magnificent. I used to pass the Castle every day going to work - it's amazing how blase you can get when you live with so much history, so it is always enlightening to hear others comments.

Our son's middle name is Warwick.
Named after Warwick, UK & Warwick, Queensland, for sentimental reasons'.

No, but I really really really would like to one day.

Yes, when I visited Britain a year ago. There are SO many castles there, many which are now ruins that the public can wander through at their leisure. I also stayed at a castle in Belgium which is now an ashram.
Yes! I grew up two miles from Kenilworth Castle and went to school in the shadow of Warwick Castle (see photo). We spent a lot of time on holiday exploring castles in Wales and other English ones too. As an adult I have also visited a couple of Scottish castles... oh and several German and Belgian ones too.
I imagine it's quite hard to grow up in a middle class British family and NOT go to a castle!
Yes I have both in England and Germany.

However I think also in Spain, and other European countries however Neurschwanstein stands out the most in my mind as well as one that is on the Rhine in Germany. Also france.

No. But I would totally love to! I think it would be amazing to be surrounded by so much history.
Yes numerous times. They're dotted around where I live so I'm lucky
I have been to Edinburgh Castle in Scotland and we spent around four hours there
They're fascinating!
Been to Warwick, Kent, Edinburgh, Blarney & the Alhambra.
Enjoyed them all....what History!
Edinburgh, and Cardiff. Both a decade ago on a day trip from London where our main accommodation was. My mum and sister have since been back to England several times over the last few years and visited a few more castles.
I've been through so many castles in England and Scotland and also in Europe. I have to say the Bavarian castles are far more opulent than those in the U.K. I never tire of visiting them as each one is so different.
Yes i love all the history surrounding them ♡
Yes I have many times. Was born in Edinburgh so am very familiar with Edinburgh Castle. Have also visited many others all over the UK. My stepfather was born and brought up in a Castle in Scotland and used to tell us kids stories about the "Green Lady" ghost which apparently walked through the castle.
