Walmer Castle

We spent a very enjoyable hour at Walmer Castle near Deal. It's run by English Heritage and is quite expensive to enter (£17 for a family). As it happend we're member of English heritage.. so get in for free. Suffice to say the Castle and particularly the grounds were at their absolute best in the spring sunshine. The following photos show that well I think:

Some of their formal beds are stunning:

These cowslips seemed to be growing wild, but this appears to be a cultivated variety

Finally we got good views of this frog in a large pond
