Guildford Castle Keep & Grounds ,Surrey England

Springtime with beds of spring flowers. The castle was founded by one of the barons of William the Conqueror and built around 1066 following the Battle of Hastings. The surviving walls are 12th and 13th century.Starting in 2003 there was a year-long conservation project. The keep was partially renovated, and the first floor was floored and roofed. During this project which ended in 2004 original features such as crenellations were found to still exist. The keep now contains a visitor centre, open between April and September, that includes written panels describing the history of the castle and a model of the place as it appeared in about 1300. The roof of the tower is reachable by a staircase which allows views of the grounds and parts of Guildford.
