Tonbridge Castle

On Wednesday I went to Tonbridge, Kent.  I went there to meet my brother, Lance and to finally meet my half-brother Steve all of which is a post for another day.   But while in Tonbridge I thought I would do some sightseeing and I visited the Castle.
There is not much left of the Castle now, just the Gateway but it has been turned into an interesting exhibition and you have a audio handset to explain your journey around the Castle.  There is also an audio-visual section in the Guardroom and there are various models about the Castle.  

It is not a very large Castle to visit but it is worth the visit.

There are a few more photos on my flickr Tonbridge Castle


  1. Hi Lynne! the castle is neat. I have never been in a castle before so this would be an awesome castle to visit. Thank you for sharing your trip with us :o) Hugs Jennifer

  2. Lovely photos on Flickr. I always enjoy your detail photos because they give a good impression of what the places are like. If I ever get to that area I think I'll drop into Tonbridge Castle; I think I'd like it, too.
