Castle Howard, Yorkshire

Castle Howard is a magnificent 18th Century house with extensive collections and breathtaking parkland and gardens.

Between 1979 and 1981, Castle Howard was the main location for the filming of Granada Television's adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited. Although it is not certain that Waugh identified his Brideshead with Castle Howard, for many people, these two places have come to epitomise nostalgia for pre-war England.
