Castles Castles Castles

Everybody dreams of castles, grand old-world opulence, majestic homes of lords and royals, with elegantly decorated rooms, defensive fortifications and ornate architecture flourishes. Now, of course, we only visit castles as tourist sites. Many ancient castles are now protected as national treasures and historical landmarks, where we can walk through and try to imagine what life was really like in those centuries, whether it was really as luxurious as the fairy-tale stories (most certainly not).

Here’s a gallery of castle images selected as a trial run of two new product offerings I am testing, RedBubble for t-shirts and stickers, and Cafe Press for mugs and greeting cards. These are in addition to my standard offering of fine art prints through Pictopia.

Please try them out and let me know what you think, what you’d like to see more (or less) of in the future.

Note: Empire Avenue shareholders get an additional 10% discount on prints.

These are great, we’ve got a lot of castles here in the UK, but I used to sell French property years ago and they’ve got tons of chateaux and they’re amazing!!

Prague is pretty incredible for architecture too, wondered around there for a few days just blown away by the buildings. (I just noticed your comment, Czech Republic, Poland & Scotland.)

If you ever want a guide around East Anglia, UK, give me shout!

All the best, Peter

Lol, Meetu! So very much not Russian style 🙂 Also, I don’t think we used to have Castles… More like Palaces.  This made me wonder about “why?” 🙂

You are right! I know so little about Russia. But you do have turrets in Russian architecture? right?
