There’s nothing quite like a castle for the romantic in each of us. I’ve never been to Europe, so my experience with real-life castles has been rather limited, but today I’d like to share Craigdarroch Castle with you.
It’s been on my mind lately because I’m writing a novel set in Victoria, BC, Canada, hailed as the most British city outside the United Kingdom. I’m loving the opportunity to write scenes in some of my favorite locations in the city, and several of the early scenes take place in Craigdarroch. My characters will also be revisiting it later in the novel.
My son and daughter-in-law lived in Victoria for the six years they attended University of Victoria. This means that my husband and I visited as many times as we could, even though it’s clear across the province from our home. One week in May, 2008, my daughter and I visited and spent a few lovely hours in Craigdarroch. Let me show you some of the photos we took.
Did you enjoy this little tour of a lovely castle? Have you ever visited one? Share your experience in comments!
