21 July 2012 — Walmer Castle


In July 2012, we took an afternoon and went to Walmer Castle.  As English Heritage Members, we were able to go for free–well, once we paid our membership that is.  Walmer Castle is famous for several reasons; however, in my mind, the most famous thing is that the Duke of Wellington (the same guy who invented Wellington Boots).

The castle itself was really well designed and looked neat.  While it wasn’t classic castle, it was well preserved.  It was shorter–more fort-like–but had what used to be a moat.  It also had incredible gardens.

The gardens were wonderful to walk through.  The flowers were very pretty, and the greenery was–well–green.  If you want to see the pictures we took, have a look at our flickr set for Walmer Castle.
