Pretty simple this time round. Does anyone have a favourite historical place that they have visited or want to visit?

Right now, my favourite places I have visited is:

Brodie Castle
Duffus Castle ruins (they are pretty amazing)
Grianan of Aileach fort in Donegal, Ireland (100% recommend if you are ever in Ireland)

Where I want to visit:

Hever Castle
Wolf Hall
Edinburgh Castle
Buckingham Palace
Kilkenny Castle

If you have pictures, it would be nice to see! I have ones from Duffus Castle somewhere on my camera.

It's well worth it. The views are amazing and the climb up isn't even that bad!

My all time favouite would be either Culzean Castle (pronounced like cull-lane ) or Brig O'Doon. I've been going ever since I was a little girl since its near to my home and my family are Kennedy's so ya never know, maybe I'm a descendant of the Kennedy's who first owned Culzean I was star struck when I watched The Wicker Man for the first time and saw the castle in the movie! Knowing that Christopher Lee has been in my neck of the woods is cool the woodlands and the beach at Culzean are lovely too. I wanted my wedding there but I'm not made of money :laugh:

Brig O'Doon is in my hometown and very popular with the tourists and fans of the poet Rabbie Burns

I also love Dunure which is a little village with a castle ruin which was owned by the Kennedy's as well and is about 10 mins away from Culzean. I go there a lot for a walk along the beach and a walk up the ruins.

I've been to Edinburgh and Stirling Castle as well. As for abroad, the best historical place I have visited so far was King John's Castle in Limerick. I also really want to visit Eilean Donan Castle in the highlands

I'll add some pics. It'll take too long to find them on my laptop so I'll just get some from Google

Hampton Court Palace. I went there when I was younger and loved it to bits.

And I want to go to Hever Castle and the Tower of London purely because of the ghost stories

Hampton Court is just beautiful in the summer. There's a maze as well where lots of couples/families go into The gift shops are just so expensive at Hampton..

Have visited the St- Paul's church in Frankfurt, the so called cradle of German civil rights. Amazing!

*Image

Would love to visit the Bundestag in Berlin, the Buckingham Palace in London, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the forbidden City in Beijing, the Forum Romanum in Rome, the Bastille in Paris, the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles, *etc.

An endless list which will never be completed.*

I believe you. This ancient city looks so awesome. Everything seems to be engraved inside of a stone, like a fantastic artwork of human creating.*

I've been on a Battlefield trip to France and Belgium, to the Holocaust memorial museum in Berlin, and to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Bet you can't guess what my area of interest is

I don't have any photos on my phone from the Battlefield as I went when I was in school. But...

The Holocaust Museum, Berlin, Germany.

I really want to go to Hever Castle..... the home of Anne Boleyn. I also need to visit Hampton Court Palace.

I am major Tudor geek and I've still never been to HCP! I went to Hever when I was little but don't really remember it
