Castles and Forts

Our coast has also been our first line of defence. This means around the UK coastline, we have the remains of castles and forts offering a glimpse into the country’s medieval and military past.

Location is everything, and visiting a castle will also get you out in some of the most spectacular and breathtaking locations.
