For centuries now, the strong have conquered, just to sit upon a throne enrobed in the stone walls of a majestic castle. Withstanding the test of time, these towering structures will still beat the competition of modern architecture. Castles have always been associated with royalty and the opulent life of rulers. Even those we build in the air are majestic and more sturdy than those built in the sand. Take a look at these Must-See Fairytale Castles Fit For Royalty:
Home to the period drama, Downton Abbey, Highclere Castle is now home to the Earl of Carnarvon and stretches to nearly 5,000 acres.

It seems that Highclere was in dire need of repairs that amounted to millions of pounds, but thanks to Downton Abbey and paying tourists, the Earl can now reside for longer at this beautiful location that dates back hundreds of years.
