With moats to peer into, turrets to climb and battlements from which to see off imaginary baddies, the UK’s generous sprinkling of castles make great family days out. This week we’re asking for your favourite, be it the organised fun of somewhere like Warwick Castle or a brooding ruin frequented only by cawing crows.
Please include prices and websites if relevant, and if you have a photo of the fortress in question, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 12 April at 9am BST
