Old Wardour Castle

Our visit to the English Heritage landscape in and around Salisbury


Another romantic day out together at Wardour Castle in Slaisbury enjoying our English Heritage membership.

Set in the peaceful Wiltshire countryside beside a lake, Old Wardour Castle, near Tisbury was once one of the most daring and innovative homes in Britain. It was built in the 14th century as a lightly fortified luxury residence for comfortable living and lavish entertainment. Today the castle ruin provides a relaxed, romantic day out for couples, families and budding historians alike.

The Historic Town of Winchester

On the 25th May 2013 I and Mel decided to take a trip to Winchester to see Wolvesey Castle. I had forgotten just what a historic town this is, full of the most wonderful history at every turn. The cathedral, the castle, the abbey and the farmers market kept us more than busy and left so much still to be visited. We will be returning soon to complete our tour and sample some more of the cake at “Ginger Two” cafe.
