Eastnor Castle has been named one of the leading castles for weddings following a recent study.

According to new research conducted by photo wall art creator StoryBoards, Eastnor ranks as the eighth most popular castle for nuptial celebrations in the UK.

Using data from Hitched.co.uk, the study considered a field of over 70 romantic castles before determining that the Herefordshire stronghold, with 51 five-star reviews, stands as the nation's eighth best venue of its kind, and the highest rated in its county.
