On a fantastically sunny day in June I decided to head out to Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire. It’s an English Heritage property that had been on my radar for a while because of the reputation of its reconstructed Elizabethan garden and because it had been some time since I’d paid a visit to some proper ruins. In the end it proved to be even more spectacular than I had imagined.

As always when I’m travelling in London or elsewhere I tend to keep my camera close at hand. Cities like London are great for spotting unusual architecture or a brief snapshot of history. I certainly wasn’t disappointed on a recent trip. Just up from the Clink Prison Museum is the only remaining section of Winchester Palace.
