As lovers of all things history and castle-related, England and Wales are a treasure trove of days out and out-of-the-blue nerdy visits. That’s why, when visiting the lovely Kenilworth Castle recently we were more than taken in by the genius salesman that was the membership stand man. However, we also love a good bargain, so jumping on a year’s membership we decided to set ourselves a challenge.
How many English Heritage properties could we visit before the year’s membership was up? Game. On. With over 400 historic sights to visit, we decided to check off as many as we possibly could (well could within the time left from both of our full-time jobs). Here’s what we have ticked off so far since the start of our challenge.
📍 The Tithe Barn, Bradford-upon-Avon
📍 Clifford’s Tower, York
📍 Kirby Hall
📍Rushton Triangular Lodge
Running total of costs we should have incurred: £138.05
Number of Properties Visited: 20
