GrimsthorpeCastle today is an historic house rather than a castle in the traditional sense, but you can see the way the architect, Sir John Vanbrugh, incorporated elements in his design to create a feeling of a fortress. When you visit, see if you can spot the design details that are included in some of the pictures.
The Castle is made of limestone. It takes on different colours and character depending upon the time of day and the intensity of the sunlight.
Grimsthorpe is a fantastic place to visit and we would encourage people to look at the website for further visitor information www.grimsthorpe.co.uk.
