Details: Castle Rising Castle is situated just off the A149 near Sandringham in West Norfolk. The stone keep (built in approx. 1140 AD) is one of the finest examples of its kind in the UK. The castle has been used as a hunting lodge, royal residence and in the 18th century was home for a mental patient. There are rumours that a ghost (of former resident Queen Isabella) wanders the top floor (extra points if you manage to photograph her!).

Our group photography session takes place over 2-3 hours. After a brief introduction and some gentle direction, you'll be free to wander and capture images in your own creative style. Jon will be on hand to answer any questions and to offer encouragement and advice where needed. After an hour or so, we'll take a short break before heading off again.

The walk is aimed at beginner and hobbyist photographers, any camera type is fine (smartphones included) - please don't worry if you're new to photography, walks aren't a competition and everyone is made to feel equally welcome. Group walks aren't intended to be in depth/technical tuition sessions but more of an opportunity for like minded folk to get together to practice taking photographs. If you feel nervous about being in a group or have any concerns or questions before booking your place, please just drop me an email.
