Stately homes may be spread across all over England, then again you'll have to strive to find one as authentically stately as the Castle Howard, a sign of glory and courage set in the Howardian Hills. This is one of the world's most flawless structures, unmistakable for being talked about with great reverence in Brideshead Revisited, broadcast in the mid 1980s. It took three earls' lifetimes to develop; these days', in spite of all that it keeps on being controlled by the Howard family, yet you can take a walk around the house and grounds-eighteenth century walled nursery, roses, delphiniums, havens, veranda and patios.

Orchestrated as a medieval jewel, Haddon Hall was at first controlled by William Peveril, son of William the Conqueror and what you see today dates back from the mid fourteenth century to the late sixteenth century. The spot was abandoned for the mid 1800's to 1900's, so it remained unmarred from the "modernization" experienced by such an assortment of other houses. Attractions include the church; the Long lobby, soaked up in daylight; and the stupendous banqueting anteroom, for all occasions and purposes unaltered since the era of Henry VIII. The film Elizabeth was shot here, and, as anybody may expect, Haddon Hall made an impeccable setting. Outside are exquisite parks and yards.
