Wandering through Castle Rising Village

Castle Rising is a tiny little village with a population of about 200 people, give or take, located about 5 miles outside of King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

The Castle Rising castle is still standing, barely. Isabella of France, Queen of England and wife of King Edward II, took refuge at the castle after her son, Edward III, overthrew her to claim the throne.

Castle Rising is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. Some other places worthy of stopping are Hunstanton, Old Hunstanton, King’s Lynn and Holme-next-the-Sea.
