Zamek Krasiczyn, Kaplica

Poland, Krasiczyn Castle, Chapel

Raby Castle is located in the County of Durham near Staindrop, England. The medieval castle was built in the late 14thcentury for John Neville, 3rdBaron Neville de Raby. The Neville family ownership lasted until 1569 and ended with their unsuccessful plotting of the “Rising of the North.” The castle was confiscated and held by the Crown for the next forty-three years, until it was sold to Sir Henry Vane the Elder in 1626. The Vane’s modernized the castle and carried out extensive renovations during the 18thand 19thcenturies. Raby Castle boasts a Gothic entrance hall, an octagonal drawing room, a medieval chapel, the Baron’s Hall, and an extensive art collection, which includes works by Sir Joshua Reynolds and Sir Anthony Van Dyck. The castle remains a private home and serves as the seat of the Vane family, the Barons Barnard. Raby Castle has an irregular design plan, with nine towers along its perimeter. The castle had a drawbridge and moat at one time, but the drawbridge was replaced by a flagstone walkway. The castle is open to the public and sits on 200 acres, which includes a curtained wall, a deer park, a gatehouse, a coach house, a café, a shop, a playground for kids, a horse drawn carriage collection, walled gardens, and the Raby Castle Cricket Club. The castle has picnic areas, guided tours, and bike rentals.
