Weekend wanderings – Bodiam Castle, Sussex #photos

I thought I’d take a break from the blog tour and instead have a wander around Bodiam Castle in Sussex. The ruins are well preserved and still a beautiful example of a moated castle.

It’s strange to be looking back at these photos of Bodiam Castle today, as its my wedding anniversary and this trip was during our honeymoon. We had a 4 month old baby and a toddler, so a holiday abroad wasn’t possible. It was a wonderful honeymoon all the same, perfect for a writer who loves everything medieval (and my husband liked the fish!).

I have so many photos, it’s hard to pick my favourites. This next one makes me smile, my curly haired little boy chilling with his dad.

Now lots of random shots.

A mystery we’ve yet to solve – what do these tiles symbolise? – found on the floor, on the wall and up in the tower.

The last visit a couple of years ago was during the summer holidays, when my son and daughter took part in a knight and princess workshop. They had great fun, and I got to soak up a bit of medieval magic as I watched the people in costumes and wandered around the camp they had set up around the castle.

This weekend wander was inspired by a question from Faith on day 4 of the blog tour. See her interviewing me here, along with her review of Visions of Zarua.

Now back to the blog tour. Click the image below if you want to find out more.

  1. Wow, what a beautiful castle and still with a moat! It doesn’t look like there were too many people either which makes for a more pleasant atmosphere. I’ve not visited there yet but your pictures certainly make me want to go. And congratulations and well wishes on your anniversary :)<3
