Keys to the Castle
What's a 21st-century castle owner to do? The royal roof raised in the 1400s hasn't been repaired since the 1800s, plus it's leaking. Two ghosts romp at midnight, and heating 100 rooms is no walk in the park. Sounds romantic, but what is it like to live in a castle? American host John Barrowman tours four castles from Dorset and Suffolk to Scotland and discovers what everyday life is like behind those towers. Modern living in a medieval dwelling definitely has more ups and downs than just a drawbridge.
