Penrhyn Castle

Another day out with the family today, a place where they had been before but was a new experience for me. I am glad I went. Got out of the house (needed it after feeling a bit down the day previously) and it was a worthwhile visit. I have never visited a place before that dripped with so much opulence. There is a Rembrandt painting on display and the staff are so knowledgeable. There is such a lot to see, and we didn’t have time to see the gardens properly. The National Trust staff were pushing the membership quite strongly, and we took it as they had a special discount that actually finishes tomorrow, and we got our admission fee of £20 back. We thought it was a good deal as we will probably be visiting a few National Trust sites throughout this summer.
And we can finish off the visit to Penrhyn Castle another time.
