I love a good Castle. Luckily North Wales is full of amazing Castles. Last week I took the boys to Harlech Castle and we had a grand old time. It’s well maintained and has an amazing history to it. It’s positioned on the top of a hill that has amazing views of Snowdonia and the Irish sea. Unlike Carlisle castle, I didn’t get to ruminate on the impact of Brexit, I just got to look at the awesome views.
I recently went on holiday with the boys and we swung past Carlisle Castle (birthplace of the world rebound Jake Archibald). It is one of the better castles that we’ve been to in the UK and I would heartily recommend spending some time visiting it if you are in the area. I didn’t how significant the role was that Carlisle Castle played in the history of the England and Scotland, and it was great to find out more whilst we were there.
