Castle Howard - Yorkshire

    Newer Older

    Artizen HDR lock05

    Castle Howard is a stately home in Yorkshire, England, 25 miles (40 km) north of York. It is one of the grandest private residences in the country. Most was built from 1699–1712 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 which 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.
