Castle Howard, Yorkshire, England.

An amazing place, I would throughly recommend this visit to everybody, a vast and beautiful place...truely beautiful and amazing..inside and out.

Castle Howard is a stately home in North Yorkshire, England, 25 miles (40 km) north of York. It is one of the grandest private residences in the country. Most was built from 16991712 for the 3rd Earl of Carlisle, to a design by Sir John Vanbrugh. It is not a true castle: the word is quite often used for country houses in England that were built after the end of the castle-building era (c.1500) and were not intended to have any military function.
Castle Howard has been the home of part of the Howard family for more than 300 years.
Castle Howard might be familiar to television audiences as "Brideshead" in Granada Television's 1981 adaptation of Brideshead Revisited. Today, it is part of the Treasure Houses of England heritage group.
