51 British Castles Full of History ...

British castles come in all shapes and sizes - all magnificent. Some look like grandiose houses, others like those of fairytales, ones we dreamed of living in as a fairy princess when we were kids. Some British castles remain the seat of families who have lived in them for generations, even from the times they were built, some have passed into private hands and others are looked after for the nation by the National Trust or English Heritage. If you're visiting the UK on vacation, a trip to at least one of the British castles on this list should be on your itinerary.
