Castle Howard. Yorkshire. England

Castle Howard is more a palace than a castle. This vast building, designed by Vanburgh assisted by Hawksmoor, has 145 rooms, was begun in 1701 and took 100 years to complete. The village of Henderskelf, owned by the Earl, was demolished to make way for the house. It was the setting for the TV & film adaptations of 'Brideshead Revisited'.
