Tjolöholms slott / castle
First visitors to stay the night in our new home in Gothenburg. My mother, Marlous and aunt, Helma Stockmann came to visit me for a couple of days from Denmark and the Netherlands. We spent one day visiting the castle Tjolöholms slott south of Gothenburg. The interesting thing about this castle is that it is built in English-Scottish style as it belonged to the Scottish Dickson family. They were an important trading family in Gothenburg and the name comes across quite often when walking around the city. Some claim the castle is more British than any castle in Great Britain. Definitely worth a visit!
According to Erik’s sister Pip in Melbourne there exists a copy of Tjolöholms castle somewhere in Australia. Someone from the Dickson family, who wanted to feel at home in Australia?
