The view that most people see on arrival at Brownsea Island, the largest of the eight islands within Poole Harbour, Dorset, England.
The castle was built in the 16th century and was part of the south coast defence system put into place by King Henry VIII, along with Portland, Sandsfoot and Hurst.
The castle was renovated during the 19th century and converted into an impressive private residence.
Despite being badly damaged by fire in 1895, the castle was rebuilt and when the National Trust acquired the island in 1962, the castle was leased to the John Lewis partnership, who use it as a private hotel for employees and their families.
