COUPLES had a Valentine's Day treat when a 12th Century castle was bathed in pink light.

More than 300 couples enjoyed romantic Valentine's dinner dates at Walworth Castle, near Darlingtion, last night.

To mark the occasion, the owners made sure the castle was in the pink with a huge new lighting system.

Vera Carroll, assistant manager at the castle, said: "The co-owner, Rachel Swain, came up with the idea. We always have lots of candlelit dinners on Valentine's Day because it's such a romantic place."
