This moated castle is one of the last left in England. Built at the meeting of three streams, the location was perfect for a fortified manor, and a structure has stood in that area since the 1300s. In 1451 it was granted to the Fiennes family, and the 21st Baron and his family still reside in the home. The grand castle was used as the filming location for┬áViola de Lesseps’ palace in Shakespeare in Love. Strangely enough the actor who played Shakespeare in the film, Joseph Fiennes, is a descendent of the Fiennes family that has lived Broughton Castle since the 15th century.
