England doesn't have a great weather nor high mountains but when it comes to cultural heritage, England shouldn’t be forgotten. The UK has absolutely amazing castles. Whether you like fortresses, glamorous palaces or moats and dungeons, England has a castle for you! Here is a list of my favorite castles in England.

1. Leeds Castle, Kent

If you want to spend a relaxing day in the countryside and see an amazing Norman Castle, Leeds is the place to go! The park is amazing, the castle stands in the middle of a lake it is a beautiful sight. The price of entry is quite expensive but the ticket is valid for a year :)

Windsor Castle

2. Windsor Castle

Windsor is one of the most impressive castle in the entire country, home to the Queen of England. Windsor is more than its castle, the town of Windsor is charming too, its setting is lovely and across the bridge you have the little student town of Eton, home to Eton College which provides more prime ministers than any other colleges in the country.

5. Chatsworth House (aka Pemberley)

Do you remember Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen? In the movie Mr Darcy’s castle is the perfect representation of elegance with its beautiful grounds and marble floor! You can actually visit it and it a beautiful place in the Peak District.
