Matilda in Raglan Castle

Last month we had a short break in Wales and after spending 2 days in Cardiff (visiting Doctor Who related places) we moved to the South-East Wales. And spent a glorious morning in Raglan Castle. I must admit I didn’t know much about it prior to going there and it came as an amazing surprise that one of our favourite TV series was filmed there – Merlin!! We only discovered it on the way out so I didn’t take photos of the actual places seen in the film. But we are now planning another trip there – and this time I will bring two dolls dressed as Arthur and Merlin (currently in the works!!) and will take more photos!!

This time, however, I brought A Girl for All Time Matilda dressed in one of my Tudor gowns. And I had wonderful time photographing her there!!

Those who have watched the Merlin TV series might recognize this courtyard – it was in one of the episodes.

One of the rooms.

The Great Hall.

There is a view from it onto another courtyard which was where a few scenes of the last episode of Season 1 took place (the castle stood for The Isle of the Blessed).

Yet another view from Merlin.

And the beautiful castle moat. Remember Merlin and Gaius approaching the castle on a boat? It was filmed there!

And, finally, a view from the top!

    Wow, absolutely beautiful! Great pictures, and I guess this might be the best Tudor dress you did so far (but the others were also great!), I love the dark blue of the main tissu, and everything else matches just perfectly! Thank you very much for this trip to Raglan Castle, a very remarkable place!
