CASTLE HOWARD

The entrance to Castle Howard was massive and huge. It went on for a mile or so until we came to a monument that looked much like the Washington Monument.




Home to the Howard family for over 300 years, Castle Howard is a magnificent 18th century residence set within 1,000 acres of breathtaking landscape in the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of North Yorkshire. Castle Howard is one of Yorkshire's finest historic house and estate.

We tried on hats in the Garden shop. I finally bought one to keep my head warm and it did not mess up my hair. You know it is all about the look.

 
See no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil
Willson's, Allen's and Gibb's
This is the backyard or back garden as they would call it.

Look out at the lake in front of the Castle

Other side of the entry way under the dome.

I found this interesting that the fabric on the furniture and the walls are the same.
