My whole childhood is punctuated by trips to Bodiam Castle. With a variety of dogs - over the years - we always took guests there; our cousins, some German friends, Japanese girls, whenever we wanted to show off a bit of the South East of England, we drove down to Bodiam.
On our way back from Hastings, I drove Daughter and her friend (without the aid of the Sat Nav: I am so clever) to Bodiam Castle. It's a tradition; you can't not do it.
I love it so much.
In my eyes, Bodiam Castle just got cooler when Adam Ant jumped from a window and into the moat in one of his videos. Though I've trawled YouTube for Adam and the Ants videos (oh I had a lovely time) I can't find out which one it was.
