Herstmonceux castle 10th June 2008

I have also received some great pictures from Janet Jones, and if you would like to see these, please click here.

Herstmonceux is renowned for its magnificent moated castle, set in beautiful parkland and superb Elizabethan gardens. Built originally as a country home in the mid- 15th - century, Herstmonceux Castle embodies the history of Medieval England and the romance of Renaissance Europe.


We arrived just after midday, so the first stop was refreshments of course, I really needed a cup of tea or two and had a tasty jacket potato with tuna.
