Don’t we all deserve a moat?

    #18 also has a hidden floor. It appears to have one less than it actually does to fool invaders.

    • Castle Owner

      You f'ing ass hole. Now I have to sell the place and find a new castle with a hidden floor.

      • Daith_Lee

        LOL…Thank you for that!

  • Bukssna

    These are the places worth going to when Zombie Apocalypse happens!

    • droppin loads!

      Can we please stop with this zombie apocalypse BS?

      • Droppin Walkers

        Someone is obviously not prepared.

        Don't worry you'll be one of the first to go!

      • theKid

        droppin loads is right. fuck the zombie apoc crap… it's lame

    • Yoselahonda

      It's also likely much better at keeping out those God Damn Fuckin' Mongolians!

  • Just Sayin'

    After seeing the Chateau's in france, #16 is looking slightly less impressive now.

    • lat297

      yeah, but Leeds Castle is a real castle, not some pimped up house on steroids.

    • AnyoneForCoffee

      Bit of an age difference….

  • nelpit

    There's a fine line between cool moat and tragic flooding.

  • adonisallan

    Don't know if they're moats or just flooded

    Wow, I'm not sure how you could've missed the castle of Trakai, Lithuania. Beautiful list nonetheless!

      Hey. The only "B" word you should call a girl is beautiful. Bitches love to be called beautiful.

      Huge… Tracts of land.

  • lat297

    #1 and in fact all of these are now my number 1 destination come the Zombie apocalypse…

    • zackgonick

      Gonna have to disagree… I think an aircraft carrier is a much better option.

      But, fill it with piranha and alligators, and you might be on to something.

      • lat297

        Aircraft Carriers need tons of maintenance… they can move, but they will eventually sink unless carefully looked after… 🙂

        Read Day by Day: Armageddon and its sequel for a scary depiction of this 🙂

        • zackgonick

          Interesting… I may have to check that out after I finish 11/22/63.

  • Amadeus_rex

    #2 and #5 – Same moat, so technically only 19 amazing moats from around the world.

  • 29er

    #13 Beautiful architecture. Bitches love architecture.

  • 29er

    #9 At least they had some land to travel around inside of their moat.

    • Underbaker

      You just know that this castle is saying to the other castles in its best Crocodile Dundee voice. "You call that a Moat? Here's a Moat"

      • Overcooker

        You are dumb

  • ggg

    Thanks for including the location.

  • NOLA

    #10 Amazing Race Location (Castle of the Lady's)

    #18 Now I see why Ninjas were so feared. Even I could climb into any window in that "castle".

  • Marc

    #4 is my hometown !!

  • G1880

    #16 bad picture of Leeds Castle, i only live down the road from this and its stunning..the castle not my house…my house is more of a bunker.

  • Anomanom

    #7 Q. How do you get into the castle?
    A. Very Caerphilly!

  • craigagm

    Aaaahh, a time before the threat of bombers sending you back to the stone age, where a simple lake around your awesome fortress would keep you safe…those were the days.

  • Liien

    all cool, just one missing from Schwerin in Germany
