A day at Rockingham Castle!

As you know if you've read my articles and followed my blog for quite a while, each year I go from France (where I live) to England to visit my family who lives there. I took the plane from Nice to Luton last friday and since that day I've been staying in England at my grandmother's house in a small village called Loddington. 

Last Sunday we went to visit Rockingham Castle. Rockingham Castle is situated near Market Harborough in England, (addresse :  Rockingham, LE16 8TH, Market Harborough). 
My grandmother lives near Kettering and it just took us thirty minutes in the car to get there.

When we arrived we had our picnic then we visited the castle. To visit the castle, we payed 37 £ for two adults and three children. The inside of the castle isn't very big and there are games for children where you have to find things in the diffrent rooms. You can also have a guided tour of the castle but we went round on our own. Once we'd visited the castle, we went outside and visited the grounds. The gardens are beautiful and there is a wonderful country side view.

Then we went to have an afternoon cream tea in the castle tea room. It was really nice andthe tea and scones were delicious. They also serve lunch in the tea room. After our tea and cake, we went down to the ice house and the Church.
