Castles, Ruins, Stonehenge Historic Site and More – England Day 2

Guildford Castle – Guildford England

Although no documents exist about the early years of Guildford Castle, it is believed that is was built after the Norman conquest of 1066.

William the Conqueror built castles in all the important towns to prevent rebellion and to strengthen his hold on the country.

It is free to visit the castle grounds but there is a charge to climb to the top and experience the panoramic view.

The immaculate gardens include Alice’s Garden with a statue of Alice and the looking Glass. This is a must see when visiting England on your way to the Stonehenge Historic site.

Stonehenge World Heritage Site

This prehistoric monument is a unique must see site. Located at the centre of beautiful rich archaeological landscape it can be seen from the road afar. It is a source for the study of prehistory and it holds a unique place in the development of archaeology.

It is not known who built it but there are many theories. It has been a World Heritage Site since 1986.

King John’s Castle – Odiham Castle

On the way back we visited the ruins of King John’s Castle also known as Odiham Castle. The area is surrounded with beautiful hiking trails so be sure to come prepared.

Odiham Castle lies on the banks of the Basingstoke Canal, but was built long before the canal existed.

The Castle was built between 1207 and 1214. The Ruins are of 13th Century royal hunting lodge. It was probably chosen by King John as a convenient point between his strongholds at Winchester and Windsor.
