Castles of England

Castles of England
  • Appealing to all lovers of history, warfare or architecture, Chaucer College Canterbury will be running Castle-themed courses in 2014-15
  • Britain is famous for its castles, most of which were built during the Middle Ages (c.1000-1500). A castle could be a home, a centre for administration and justice, a way of keeping the population under control and to attack from.
  • Each morning there will be an English lesson themed around the history, design and purpose of some of the most important castles in the South-East. Afternoon activities include castle visits: from Dover Castle, one of the largest, defensive castles, which has seen plenty of action, to Hever Castle, the home of Ann Boleyn, one of the most tragic Queens in English history.
  • There will also be the option of visit to the most famous castle of them all, the Tower of London, home to the Crown Jewels.
