Rent a castle for that destination birthday party

In another life, you might have been a noble or a knight, and you might have gotten to spend your nights in a fancy castle or estate somewhere in Europe. But since your birthday loved one is probably not sleeping in one presently, it’s safe to say that throwing a birthday party inside a castle will be the memory of a lifetime.

Of course, you can’t just text the Queen and ask her if you can have a sleepover at her place, but Loyd & Townsend Rose has you covered. They have castles you can rent! With castles in England, Ireland, and Scotland, LTR works with the private owners of the castles to rent their homes to you for a week or weekend, including some extracurriculars, such as falconry and archery at the Althorp House or a full Scottish sport array at Forter Castle in Perthshire, Scotland.

Not every castle is created equal, and some work better for smaller groups than larger ones. If you do take LTR up on their offer, mention if it’s for a milestone occasion like a  40th, 50th, or 60th birthday – they might help you plan the party.
