Skipton Castle and Castle Resources

You can't go to England without going to see a castle. This year we chose to see Skipton Castle, one of the most complete castles in England. Skipton castle is about 900 years old, is built on a steep incline and has a moat to protect it from intruders. Half of the castle is inhabited. To read more on the history of Skipton GO HERE.

We had so much fun exploring this castle and the girls searched everywhere for the princess. Alas, she escaped us. We think she might have been at one of her other many castles and we will look for her at a different one next time. At least we didn't come across the dragon!

What could be more fun than learning about castles? We will be incorporating a Castle Lapbook into our history this year!
