As a child, I was never in a rush to grow up. I was content to live in my world of make believe and dressing like a princess. In my forties, I still prefer to dress like a princess but it's not always appropriate, however I've come to realise that life is too short to worry about what people may think. Life is too short to not do what I want to do and dress like I want to dress, so if I want to be a princess, then I will be a princess. And what better place to embrace this fantasy than at one of England's many beautiful castles/manor houses.
So in this blog I'm going to share with you some of my favourites in the south of England that I've got to explore in the past year. There are many others, some I have visited previously and others that I hope to visit soon, such as but not limited to Leeds Castle, Kew Palace, Windsor Castle, Broughton Castle, Herstmonceux Castle, Blenheim Palace and Waddesdon Manor.
I'd love to hear of any others you recommend. Let me know in the comments section.
Most of those I have listed will require pre-booking in advance of your visit.
