Tintagel Castle

Every two years my family and I take a holiday down to Cornwall for a week during Easter. It is my top choice to visit and the scenery never ceases to amaze me.

We had not explored the ruins of Tintagel Castle despite our many visits to Cornwall so this year we decided we would spend the day wandering around the historical site. Tintagel Castle is famous for being home to the legend of King Arthur.

Rievaulx Abbey

During my time in the North East of England I also visited Rievaulx Abbey, the first Cistercian abbey to be founded in the North of the country in 1132. It soon became on of the most spiritually renowned centres of monasticism in Britain. These are my favourite photographs from my walk around the ruins.

It truly is a spectacular place that I highly recommend people visit.
