In order to combine posts today I needed to come up with an England sort of thing that starts with P. And so that's how I've ended up with palaces!
If you ever go to England (or anywhere in Great Britain.. or even anywhere in Europe) be prepared to see a lot of palaces and castles. Which, by the way, I'm not sure what the difference is except that castles make me think of old ruined buildings and palaces make me think of newer currently used buildings. Am I right? What do you think the difference is?
But regardless, here's hoping you are fascinated with seeing these buildings because it's truly a key part of any British Isles Experience!
Anyway, here's a few pictures of the different castles and palaces we've been able to visit.
