Castle Howard, Yorkshire, England.

This evening, I am reporting on Castle Howard, a stunning extravagant mansion-cum-palace, which is located about fifteen miles NNE of the city of York in northern England.

Summary information on Castle Howard as follows:

  • Dates from the early 19th century from which time it has been under ownership of the family associated with the Earls of Carlisle (Howard family).
  • Inside can be found dramatic designs and collections of furniture, paintings and other items.
