Castle Howard, York

While spending a few days staying in York, we ventured out to Castle Howard. Located about 15 miles to the North East of the city, our trip to Castle Howard made a great day-out on warm but overcast day.

Castle Howard was the setting for both the 1981 Granada TV Series, Brideshead Revisited starring Jeremy Irons and the 2008 feautre film starring Emma Thompson, Michael Gambon and Ben Whishaw.

As well as visiting the house, it is well worth spending a few hours wandering around the beautiful gardens.
