Raby Castle

Last Sunday, we had a ride out to Raby Castle, a 14th century castle near Staindrop in County Durham.  It was built sometime between 1367 and 1390 and is still a private home today. 

We arrived at midday and entry was £10 per car; we ate lunch that we’d brought in the car because we weren’t sure whether there was a cafĂ© here – there is.  While we were eating, we could see a deer in the distance wandering around the castle wall.  Raby Castle has almost 200 acres of parkland and there were a number of deer roaming about.  We looked round the gardens first because it was supposed to rain.

I wasn’t allowed to take any photos inside the castle but it’s worth a look round.
