Bolton Castle

Despite its well-kept state, Bolton Castle in North Yorkshire has over 600 years of history behind it's bricks,the Pilgrimage of Grace (a protest again King Henry VIII's Dissolution of the Monasteries), Mary Queen of Scot's 6 month imprisonment and a Civil War siege that caused the northeast tower to collapse. Today, it stands as one of the UK's best preserved medieval castles.

originally built by Sir Richard Le Scrope during the years of 1379-1399, it was designed to rival the most luxurious and superlative homes of the time. While looking very much like a defensive fortress, Bolton Castle is also a lovely 3-floored, tower encrusted family home, that cost roughly £12,000 to build.

Just under 200 years later, King Henry VIII ordered Bolton Castle to be torched, as retribution for Sir John Scropes involvement in the Pilgrimage of Grace rebellion. This caused extensive damage to the Castle, but was quickly repaired over the next few years.

Castle Bolton has remained within the Scrope family for the entirety of its 614 years, and is currently owned by Lord Bolton - Sir Richard Le Scropes direct descendant.

Visitors to Bolton Castle can really get a feel for life in the past by exploring its many rooms, including the old kitchens, dungeons, armory, and even the bedroom that Mary Queen of Scots occupied. Not to mention the fantastic falconry and archery demonstrations, and the live wild boar! Many people have commented on the Castles incredible atmosphere, saying that 'many of the rooms give the feeling that their inhabitants have just walked out.'
