Guy's Tower, Warwick Castle by Irondoors Guy's Tower, Warwick Castle by Irondoors
At 39 metres of height, this twelve sided tower is the second tallest of Warwick Castle after Caesar's Tower, which you can see on the far left. The tower had five stories, of which the first one served as both the toilet and the bedchamber for the guards. The windows you see here were originally much smaller, but were eventually enlarged, so that the guards could use handheld cannons.

The tower looks really monumental here - especially in that light! I also like the perspective here with the tower close to the center - well done! It is a pleasure to view such wonderful shots of historic sites - thank you for sharing!

Thank you! The composition was kind of forced on me, as not the entire castle grounds are accessible to the public - the other side is off limits. I'm not complaining though, this view is good enough.

Lovely photo and such a great place to visit. If you have been along the battlements and inside, you can see all the engravings in the walls from guards hundreds of years ago :)

Oh yes, I've been there, but I'm afraid I was unable to take photos of the interior that were any good at all ;D

Yeah, its dark in there and if you went in when it's busy, the crowds just keep pushing forward so little chance to stop for photos :P
