From $30,000 a night to $110,000 a week, these castles are fit for a king, queen and you
Lorde was wrong: You can be royal.
For $90,000 per week, you could stay in Thornbury Castle, a beautiful estate two hours outside of London, where Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII spent their honeymoon. Thornbury has enough towers, domes, and turrets to help you live out dreams of ruling a kingdom, and amidst the suits of armor and spiral staircases within, you’ll forget you’re not living in medieval times. If you can’t quite afford an overnight stay, don’t worry: There’s a restaurant in the wine cellar.
If France is more your fancy, check out Chateau de Farcheville outside of Paris, where you can enjoy a luxurious pool, spa, theater, yoga classes, and even a moat and drawbridge to ensure your privacy. Bedecked with marble, gold, and statues of knights and dragons, this Chateau is the perfect medieval getaway. If you get tired of the opulence, there’s a bar in the basement. But none of this comes cheap–it’s $30,000 per night.
Meanwhile, Scotland sports Glenapp Castle, south of Glasgow, a sprawling 36-acre estate that can become your home for $110,000 per week. Glenapp is on a remote island, where you could befriend any number of the deer, cows, and even seals that call it home. The property also has a gorgeous garden with manicured hedges, perfect for your instagram.
