Bristol: Bishop Geoffrey of Mowbray was in charge of Bristol from 1066 until his death in 1093 and built the first castle there. Bristol Castle was a rather impressive structure by 1300. It was demolished in 1665, and all that remains of it are a few ruins at Castle Green.

Caludon, Wyken, Coventry, Warwickshire: Caludon Castle, the legendary birth place of St. George and associated with the legend of Robin Hood, was in the hands of Mowbrays from 1343 to 1432. All that remains of it is the northern wall of the great hall.

Thirsk, Vale of Mowbray, Yorkshire: Thirsk Castle was built about 959. It became the palace and fortress of Robert de Mowbray, first Earl of Northumberland, about 1080. The castle was destroyed in the late 12th century by order of Henry II, after which the Mowbray center of power moved to Axholm, although Mowbrays maintained their presence in the Vale of Mowbray for four centuries.

Epworth, Lincolnshire (no longer standing). Saint Andrew's Church in Epworth stands beside the site of the great Mowbray manor house on the Isle of Axholm, which stood to the southeast of the church. The church is known worldwide for its association with the Wesley family. A carved Mowbray lion, already hundreds of years old when John Wesley was born, can be found in the porch. The north porch is also decorated with a coat of arms of the Mowbray family. The trees conceal the area now known as Vinegarth, the site of the Mowbray residence and the place where Sir William de Mowbray, the Magna Carta baron, died in 1224; Thomas Mowbray, first Duke of Norfolk, was born here in March 1366.
