Dunstanburgh Castle

CastleThis ruined castle is built on a remote headland on the coast near Alnwick. It’s a great place to visit as you can walk around, chat and bask in some really interesting local history. The castle was built at a time when relations between Edward II and his most powerful baron, Thomas of Lancaster, had become openly hostile. Lancaster began the fortress in 1313, and the latest archaeological research indicates that he built it on a far grander scale than was recognised, perhaps more as a symbol of his opposition to the king than as a military stronghold.

It’s a great first date spot as there’s plenty of chance to get to know one another while admiring the breath-taking views. Image via martin Samuels on Flickr.
