Hey lovelies. Last week I played tourist for the day at Hever Castle. And it seems I now have a castle obsession. Strange considering my history knowledge generally extends to appreciating Jonathan Rhys Meyers looking rather good in the Tutor TV series. Hardly a history expert.
This week I visited Leeds Castle, a palace used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon, for what I don't know. Sleepovers? Anyway, it is apparently a Jacobean country house, but to me, its firmly in the castle category. Just look at the first photo. That is not a house.
The portrait is of Lady Baillie who owned the castle for quiet a while, and was the reason its decorated so lovely. I couldn't actually get many photos inside, well actually I wasn't allowed to take any...but one sneaked in. And oh, I couldn't resist a castle selfie.
