Drogo Castle, the most modern castle in England

Drogo Castle is officially the most modern in England, which is due to the fact that it was built in the early 20th century. A castle that does not reach 100 years of history but that also has a lot to tell and, above all, it is spectacular like any other. It is currently open to the public for a certain time, so if you are going to be in London you should stop by to see it.

The creator of this castle was Julius Drewe , who laid the first stone in 1911 but who several years before began to buy the land in the area to be able to get a good land on which to build this fortress and thus settle his family. After World War I some renovations had to be done, but still the castle is really spectacular.

His story

In its original construction, the Drogo Castle had medieval style and very thick walls, highlighting the straight lines in its decoration. It took almost 30 years to build, which gives an idea of ​​the great amount of details that were taken care of to make it a perfect fortress. After the death of Mr. Drewe, his wife and son continued to live in it, and after a bombing in London it served as an orphanage for the most needy children.

Essential visit

Visiting it is very interesting since you will be able to discover the history of the family that owns it, as well as a very interesting part of the history and culture of the country. Among the curiosities that you can see are the marks that are on the floor of the dining room and that determine the places where the servants should be placed. You can also take a walk through its extensive gardens or even have a tea in the cafeteria. This castle is very close to Devon and will be open to the public until November 3 this year.
