» English Castles - 2 Day Private Chauffuer Driven Tour

Experience the majesty of England's most famed and beautiful castles

English Castles 2 Day Tour

Travel into history on this 2 day private chauffeur driven English Castles Tour and experience the majesty England's most famed and beautiful castles. English Castles originated in the 9th and 10th centuries. Noble Lords built castles to control the area immediately surrounding them, Castles were both offensive and defensive structures; they provided a base from which raids could be launched as well as protection from enemies. Although their military origins are often emphasised in castle studies, Castles also served as centres of administration and symbols of power. Urban castles were used to control the local populace and important travel routes, and rural castles were often situated near features that were integral to life in the community, such as mills and fertile land.
