Bodiam Castle – UK
During the Hundred Year War, a soldier built Bodiam Castle to protect East Sussex from the French. It served as a defensive castle throughout the medieval times, but soldiers eventually left the castle. Today, it reminds visitors of the rich history in Britain.
Tourists simply cross a moat – yes, a moat – and can journey through the building and witness the history. Although not ‘abandoned’, it is no longer used to protect the British from the French.
