Mostly, castles tend to be for visiting on history trips with school or whilst on holiday when you decide to do ‘the touristy things’.
Few people ever seriously consider buying a castle and calling it their home, instead they just dream of it, but there are some who are lucky enough to call that dream a reality.
Forget about luxury mansions, castles are where you need to live (and you can if you’ve got a million dollars or two lying around).
