Arriving here first thing on the morning as a final stop of our castle hunting trip, we had the place to ourselves and found the castle bathed in early morning light. What a sight, and indeed what a site!

Whittington Castle

Visited August 2018

Location Whittington, Shropshire

Map

 

Whittington Castle is unique as it is owned by the local community. It is free to visit, and the castle is financed by the car parking fee and sales from the cafe and gift shop. This means it is well used by the local community, and is accessible at all hours. It was especially nice to see many families relaxing and strolling around the grounds on a summers evening. There are several nice family pubs in the village of Whittington which made the whole visit an enjoyable one.

Our journey to Acton Burnell Castle was along some crazy narrow lanes and a ford to cross just to add to the fun- but it was worth it once we got there as it was a beautiful but compact castle deep in the Shropshire countryside.
