Lulworth Castle and Barrington Court

sunny

Today we visited two places, Lulworth Castle and Barrington Court.

Lulworth was built in the 17th century but was sadly gutted by a fire in the 1920s. Even though there weren't any ceilings or "insides" it was still interesting, not to mention huge. They had models in period dress, which I of course loved, being the costume buff that I am. I didn't get any pictures, though, my batteries ran out!

Barrington Court is a 16th century mansion which unfortunately has none of the original Tudor interior, but the reproductions were nice. Many of the rooms are used by a company called Stuart Interiors, that sells antique furniture - and when I say antique, I mean antique, as in furniture that's 400 years old and costs thousands of dollars. It gave the place a nice authentic atmosphere, even though I couldn't afford the cheapest candlestick! The gardens were beautiful, but they wreaked havoc on my allergies.
