Expert review of Castle Howard
Little can prepare you for the sheer scale and grandeur of this house and its estate. This was and still is home to the Howard’s whose family has overseen more than 100 years of building work before their home was finally completed.
Revealed into the public consciousness as the setting for TV and film adaptations of ‘Brideshead Revisited;’ this 18th century Baroque house is now one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations. The enormous grounds are filled with lakes, woodland walks, monuments and beautifully tended gardens while inside reveals a fine collection of art and furniture presided over by a collection of helpful guides in each room. Some visitors consider it decadent to the extreme, but for a glimpse of how the other half lives it’s worth the journey.
