We need to talk about how perfect that stone staircase is.

Belfast Castle is lovely.. but it's tiny. It's more like a fancy stone house. I come from Kent, which has thirty-two castles so I was always going to be tough to impress. Belfast Castle does have one thing I've never seen before, a cat garden! A legend states Belfast Castle will always be safe so long as there is a white cat residing there and so this myth led to the creation of the cat garden with nine hidden (stone, topiary, and mosaic) cats.

    I never knew you were from Kent! So am I, now based in London! And that staircase has put all other staircases to shame forever. Something out of a fairytale.

  4. Beautiful pictures, I especially like the one of the staircase. That staircase is beautiful. I want one in my house. I need a house first to put it in, but I want one.
    The cat garden sounds amazing, you've sold me on visiting Belfast Castle just for the cat garden.

  34. Originally from Kent but I moved to Birmingham in March of last year :)) Kent has such beautiful countryside, I miss it a bit but I love living here in the Jewellery Quarter.

  35. Yeh that place is beautiful, I'd love to go around the UK and visit all of these historical sites. I went to Warwick Castle a really long time ago now and absolutely loved it. Eilean Donan is another I'd like to see, mainly just for that landscape as I think it's utterly breathtaking.

  37. Oh my dear goodness, that photo of the stone staircase is so beautiful. Especially with all the red painted details on the exterior of the castle - though you're right, it does look more like a stately home or manor than a castle! xx

  38. I've been waiting for a post like this for ages. You already know that I love your pictures and these curtins are amazing!! I love the red detail around the windows and the shape of the stair as well, but the velvet curtins are the best!
