Peckforton Castle

During our trip to England to visit our cousin, they took us to Peckforton Castle. The castle was built in the middle of the 19th century as a family home.  It has been described as the "very height of masquerading" and one of the great buildings of its age. Today the castle is used as a luxury hotel.

We had to wait to go inside as a wedding was taking place.

The courtyard

There were aviaries on site housing many large birds of prey, with daily shows. 

The bride was excited that we had come all the way from America for her wedding.

Everything about the castle was fantastic except the random 18 hole mini-golf course.
