Built by Henry VIII as part of a chain of defences to protect England's coast from foreign invasion, following Henry's decision to break from the Catholic Church. The circular stone tower strengthened by semi-circular bastions was completed by the end of 1544 to guard the narrow entrance to the Solent and the approaches to Southampton. Restricted opening times and entrance charges apply.Hylton Castle, Hylton Dene, NorthumberlandOwned by: English HeritageRemains of gatehouse-tower of medieval castle. Originally constructed from wood by the Hylton (Hilton) family shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066, this fortified manor house was rebuilt in stone around 1400. The castle remained the principal seat of the Hylton family until the death of the last baron in 1746. The only remaining part of the castle is the gatehouse tower, which is richly decorated with coats of arms and other heraldic devices. Free open access at any reasonable time.Kendal Castle, Kendal, CumbriaOwned by: Scheduled Ancient MonumentRuins of an early 13th century castle. Built around 1200 as the home of the barons of Kendal, the castle later became home to Parr family. Although the Parrs occupied Kendal for four centuries, the family had long since deserted the castle by the time Catherine Parr, the sixth and final queen of Henry VIII, was born. The building was already a ruin in Tudor times; however some imposing stonework still remains. Free open access at any reasonable time.Kenilworth Castle, Kenilworth, WarwickshireOwned by: English HeritageRuined remains of a medieval castle / palace fortress. Perhaps best known as the home of Robert Dudley, the love of Queen Elizabeth I, who in 1575 created this semi-royal palace in order to impress his Queen. Kenilworth was actually founded around 1120 by Geoffrey de Clinton, Chamberlain to Henry I, who constructed the strong central keep. By damming and diverting local streams, huge water defences were added. In the centuries that followed, vast sums of money were spent to transform the medieval castle into a palace fortress. In 1649, Kenilworth was partly destroyed and the moat drained by Parliamentary forces to prevent it being used as a military stronghold again. Restricted opening times and entrance charges apply.Kimbolton Castle, Kimbolton, CambridgeshireOwned by: Kimbolton SchoolMedieval castle converted into 18th century palace. Although parts of the original Tudor manor house can still be seen, the majority of the castle was built between 1690 and 1720. The most famous resident was Katherine of Aragon who was detained here after her divorce from Henry VIII. Today the castle houses Kimbolton School, and has a limited number of public opening dates.Kinnersley Castle, Kinnersley, HerefordshireOwned by: Caius & Kate HawkinsIntact Tudor manor house and family home. Originally built during the reign of Henry I between 1100 and 1135, the Tudor manor house that now occupies the site was home to the powerful Vaughan family. It was Roger Vaughan who rebuilt the Norman castle between 1585 and 1601. The castle is open for guided tours on certain days during the summer months.Kirby Muxloe Castle, Kirby Muxloe, LeicestershireOwned by: English HeritageRemains of a moated 15th century mansion. The remains of this moated 15th century castle were left unfinished when its owner was executed for treason. The owner was William, 1st Baron Hastings, who began building the castle in 1480 during the Wars of the Roses. Building work stopped abruptly in 1483 when William was executed for treason by Richard III and it was never completed. Parts of the castle were occupied by remaining members of the Hastings family, but by the 16th century the site lay in ruin. Restricted opening times and entrance charges apply.Kirkoswald Castle, CumbriaScheduled Ancient MonumentIn 1210 King John granted permission to Hugh de Morvile to fortify his manor house at Kirkoswald. The resulting castle was all but destroyed by the Scots in 1314 led by Robert the Bruce, but was rebuilt just 3 years later. Completely remodelled and extended during the late 15th century, the site extended to 3-acres surrounded by a massive curtain wall, complete with drawbridge and moat. Although the castle was partially dismantled during 17th century, the northern tower still stands some 20 metres tall enclosed by the moat. The castle is now in a ruined and dangerous state, and is best viewed from the safety of the public footpath that runs adjacent to the site.Kirtling Tower, Kirtling, CambridgeshireOwned by: Lord & Lady FairhavenMedieval castle and Tudor Gatehouse. The gatehouse is all that remains of the once sprawling Kirtling Hall, a converted castle set in the Cambridgeshire countryside. The history of the original castle dates back to 1219, and over the centuries numerous additions were added. By the mid 17th century the castle had become the largest country house in the county, although this wasn't to last. By 1735 the castle had fallen into decline. The surviving gatehouse is surrounded by a moat, formal gardens and parkland. Restricted opening times and admission fees apply.Knaresborough Castle, North YorkshireOwned by: Duchy of LancasterRemains of medieval fortress. Strategically set at the top of a large cliff offering commanding views of the River Nidd, the first castle was erected shortly after the Norman Conquest of England. This was later reinforced by King Henry I, and following the murder of Thomas Becket in 1170, Hugh de Moreville and his fellow assassins took refuge in his Knaresborough Castle. Viewed as an important northern fortress by English royalty King John, Edward I and Edward II all lavished funds on strengthening and improving its defences. Like most other castles across the country, Knaresborough met its end following the Civil War, when in 1648 it was blown up, or slighted, on the orders of Parliament to prevent any future use as a military structure. Restricted opening times and entrance charges apply.Lancaster Castle, Lancaster, LancashireOwned by: Lancashire County CouncilIntact medieval castle and former prison. Occupying the site of a former Roman fort overlooking a crossing of the River Lune, a wooden Saxon fort was demolished in order to make way for this Norman castle, built around 1088 by Roger de Poitou. In 1322, and again in 1389, invading Scots attacked and burned Lancaster, damaging but not taking the castle. The castle did not see military action again until the English Civil War when it changed hands several times before being slighted. Parts of the castle used for the gaol and courts were spared. Still used as a Crown Court, guided tours of the building take place on a daily basis. Admission fees apply.Launceston Castle, Launceston, CornwallOwned by: English HeritageRuins of an early 13th century castle. Set on a large natural mound controlling the strategic crossing of the River Tamar, a wooden motte and bailey castle was erected shortly after the Norman Conquest, possibly as early as 1067. During the 13th century, Richard Earl of Cornwall, younger brother of Henry III began to rebuild the castle in stone. The castle was used for many years as an assizes and gaol. Restricted opening times and entrance charges apply.Leeds Castle, Maidstone, KentOwned by: Leeds Castle FoundationOne of the most beautifully intact medieval castles in England, Leeds dates back to 1119 when it was built as a Norman stronghold. It was in 1278 however when the castle became the property of King Edward I, that it saw significant investment. As his favoured residence, Edward greatly enhanced its defences and created the lake which surrounds the castle. Henry VIII was also a great fan of Leeds, and made many Tudor additions. Guests at the Stable Courtyard have 900 years of history and 500 acres of beautiful parkland on their doorstep. There are 16 bright, traditional bedrooms each with a Freeview TV, free Wi-Fi, and a full private bathroom.

Planning a visit? You can now stay at Warwick Castle, or arrange for a private tour including travel from London.Weeting Castle, Weeting, NorfolkOwned by: English HeritageRemains of early medieval moated manor house. Despite the name, Weeting is not a castle but a manor house built in the 12th century by the De Plaiz family. Rather than for defence, the rectangular moat that surrounds the building was added in the mid-13th century to demonstrate the wealth and power of the family. It is believed to have been abandoned from 1390. Free and open access at any reasonable time.Westenhanger Castle, Hythe, KentOwned by: Forge FamilyPartially renovated fortified manor house. The de Criol family were responsible for building the fortified manor house on the site in 1343, and it remained with the family until the War of the Roses when Sir Thomas de Criol was beheaded. Strengthened in response to threats of attack from France during the 14th century, in 1588 Queen Elizabeth used the castle as the command centre for troops who were to defend the south coast from the Spanish Armada. By the mid-17th century it was one of the largest houses in Kent, however shortly after this it started to fall in to disrepair. Recent renovation work is attempting to reverse the decades of neglect. Opened for pre-booked group visits only.Whittington Castle, Whittington, ShropshireOwned by: Whittington Castle Preservation FundRemains of extensive Medieval Marches castle . The original Norman motte-and-bailey fortification was rebuilt in the 13th century, including the stone curtain wall, inner bailey and outer gatehouse with its 42 foot long drawbridge. As a castle of the Welsh Marches, it was built on the border of Wales and England and provided excellent views towards Offa's Dyke over which Welsh raiders frequently invaded. Although added to and improved in the mid-14th century, the castle gradually fell into disrepair so that by 1392 it was declared to be 'utterly in ruins'. Whittington Castle is currently owned by the Whittington Castle Preservation Trust, a local rural community. Free and open access at restricted times and dates. There is free and open access all year round to the castle grounds.Wigmore Castle, Wigmore, HerefordshireOwned by: English HeritageRemains of extensive Medieval Marches castle. Built shortly after the Norman Conquest of England around 1070, initially as a motte and bailey type fortification, an earthen mound topped by a wooden palisade. Normally constructed to control strategic points and approaches, the castle lies almost halfway between the rivers Teme and Lugg, commanding the wide area between them. Under the ownership of the powerful Mortimer family the original wooden castle was rebuilt in stone in the late 12th century and further added to throughout the 13th century, thus creating one of the most important and striking medieval fortresses in the Welsh Marches. In the years that followed, conflict in the troubled border areas calmed, eventually rendering such fortresses obsolete and when the Mortimer family moved their administrative centre from Wigmore to Ludlow, the castle was effectively redundant. Slighted during the English Civil War, the castle fell into decay and eventual ruin. Free and open access at any reasonable time.Wilton Castle, Ross-on-Wye, HerefordshireOwned by: Mr and Mrs ParslowRemains of 12th century castle and 16th century manor house. Built shortly after the Norman Conquest of England, initially as a motte and bailey type fortification, an earthen mound topped by a wooden palisade. Normally constructed to control strategic points and approaches, the castle guards the point at which the road between England and Wales crosses the River Wye. During the 12th century, under the ownership of the powerful de Longchamps family, the original wooden castle was rebuilt using local sandstone. By the 16th century the military importance of Wilton had diminished, and when a more comfortable residence was required, a new manor house was built into the fabric of the castle recycling stone from the old walls. In 1645 during the English Civil War, the then owner Sir John Brydges refused to support either side; this so outraged local Royalists that one Sunday morning whilst he was attending church, they burned the house down. A more modern manor was built in the 19th century, which remains a residence today. Closed to the public.Winchester Castle, Winchester, HampshireOwned by: Hampshire County CouncilIntact medieval hall and castle remains. Built in 1067 just a year after the Norman Conquest of England, it was one of the grandest fortresses in England and initially served as the main seat of government before that was transferred to London. Rebuilt in stone and flint by Henry III, the royal apartments were further extended by Edward II. Little remains from that early period, as after the English Civil War in 1646 Oliver Cromwell ordered its destruction. Today, only Henry III's Great Hall survives intact, attached to which is a small museum detailing the history of Winchester. Entrance charges apply.Windsor Castle, Windsor, BerkshireOwned by: Royal Collection TrustIntact and occupied Royal Palace. Now the largest inhabited castle in the world and the oldest in continuous occupation, Windsor was originally built by William the Conqueror to secure Norman dominance around London, and to oversee a strategically important part of the River Thames. The typical earth and wood motte and bailey structure was gradually replaced with stone fortifications. In 1175 Henry II strengthened the defences and added the first royal apartments; he even planted a vineyard. Over the centuries, almost every king and queen of England has lavished funds on Windsor, adding to and rebuilding this now luxurious royal palace. Restricted opening times and entrance charges apply. 041b061a72
