Penrhyn was the fist 19th century castle that we’ve visited. It was very interesting to see it. We’ve arrived at 3.30pm and there wasn’t enough time to visit all, so we’ll have to visit it again the future.
The ice-house was part of the castle. Here they were keeping ice used for making ice cream and conserving food. The ice gathered in Winter was for cooling purposes only. Later one they were bringing Arctic ice which was used for ice cream as well.
The castle is a beautiful place, huge and with a lot of things to see. In 1 hour and a half, we couldn’t see all the rooms or the walled garden.
