Synopsis

Exploring Britain's Castles Celebrating Britain's Magnificent Legacy by Donna Wood

More than 120 of Britain's finest castles are showcased in this fabulous celebration of some of its most beautiful and historically significant buildings Britain's turbulent civil history has left it with a magnificent legacy of castles, built to intimidate and designed for defense, many now in ruin--yet they continue to hold their auras of power and mystery. Here, their stories are told, from the mighty fortress of Dover to the picturesque moated ruin of Caerlaverock. Edward I's famous castles at Caernarfon and Harlech are covered, as well as more humble landmarks such as the island tower of Castle Stalker and the legendary stones of Tintagel. This guide includes clear regional and locator maps produced by the AA's cartographic department and practical information such as contact details, opening times, and facilities. This is an essential purchase for all those interested in discovering more about Britain's unique history and the imposing structures that still dominate many areas of the landscape.
