Stay in a real castle and live happily ever after (temporarily) as King and Queen of the castle

Castles are among the top sights in Britain—so why not spend the night in one?

True, many castles are private and off-limits, and others are open purely for sightseeing, but many British castles operate little B&B operations, rental rooms, or cottages—and a few have been wholesale converted into castle-hotels.

Since there are few enough Lords of the Manor these days to pay for their upkeep and keep them lived-in (old homes deteriorate rapidly when vacant), tatterdemalion land barons (and the National Trust) are helping preserve the buildings (and fund their upkeep) by renting them out.

So say cheerio to the modern world—even if only for a few nights or week—and move into your own British castle.
