Welcome back! As mentioned in our first introduction post detailing our crazy idea to visit every castle in the United Kingdom (with caveats, of course), below you will find all of the castles we are going to attempt to visit. Once we have visited a castle it will turn green and a link to a blogpost and social media will be added so you can follow our journey and come along with us.
