Visiting Farnham Castle

While we were visiting Surrey for a friends wedding we popped by some local sights. A few hours to spare we decided to do a quick run up to Farnham to see Farnham Castle. It was actually a perfect spot to pop by quickly. It was free (bonus!), relatively small so you could see absolutely everything in less than an hour, and gorgeous views all over Farnham. 

The grounds were really beautiful. Lots of green, some little hideaway places, and gorgeous flowers. The scenery was beautiful and as castles usually are, it was situated at the highest point on a hill so you could see all of Farnham. So we walked around and enjoyed the sights and once it started raining we went down to the village for a babyccino.

Here is a little video from the day - I think I have caught the home-video bug and might try my hand at vlogging... What do you think of the video?






Ever been to Farnham Castle? And please do recommend another castle nearby London - we would love to visit some new ones!

  1. It looks like you had a great day. I love that last one of your daughter, between all the flowers, she looks really cute.
    I loved the video. I am a bit tempted by the vlogging myself but it's hard enough to keep up with the blogging so not sure I could cope with anything else!

    1. Thank you - I love that picture!

      Vlogging takes A LOT of time. It is a lot of fun, but gosh, when I used to think blogging is time-consuming, vlogging is something else! Takes ages to edit a short video like that. I might just try do it once a week, or even less...

  4. Gorgeous pics. I have never been to Farnham Castle. We are not too far from Hever which is lovely. Chiddingstone Castle is also supposed to be a great place too. Sarah #WhateverTheWeather

    1. It was a gorgeous location, but so small it was manageable with kids :) I think all kids love castles, don't they? They really get your imagination going.

  11. What a lovely little castle and it looks like a perfect distance for little legs to travel too. I love the photo of Daddy explaining what I imagine to be how to fire a bow and arrow from the top and what beautiful views from up there. All in a lovely day and a great video too. Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

  12. I grew up near Farnham and never knew that it had a castle! Looks like an interesting place to explore - will have to add it to the list and try and make a detour next time I visit my family. Glad you enjoyed your day out there :-)

    1. How funny! Well, maybe it is because it really is quite small and I think it is mainly used for commercial events, so it isn't a big sightseeing place. It was pretty though so I would recommend popping by next time you are around there :)
