The oft forgotten Guildford Castle    It really is just this beautiful in the summer.  The gardens took my breath away, as English gardens so often did.

Guildford Castle, Guildford, Surrey, is thought to have been built shortly after the 1066 invasion of England by William the Conqueror.  After the Battle of Hastings in 1066, William led his army to Canterbury and then sacked towns along the Pilgrims' Way, including Guildford. Later William, or one of his barons, built Guildford Castle. There is no record of it in the Domesday Book so construction probably started after 1086.
