A castle in perfect condition
From High Force waterfalls we headed to another nearby village, when a spectacular castle appeared on the side of the road, among the trees and surrounded by deer, geese, ducks and other animals. It looked like a perfect postcard, so we stopped the car and tried to go for a visit. Unfortunately, Raby Castle, owned by Lord Vane (ve still lives here), is closed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so we couldn't go in, but we could still enjoy the grounds. The castle is in perfect condition, surrounded by 810,000 square meters of adjoining lands. The lands include the waterfall and a deer park. Although the castle is inhabited, it is also suitable for business meetings, and there is a museum inside.
