Castle Howard Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

With its 24m-high dome, Castle Howard is John Vanbrugh's masterpiece. The statues, such as those in the entrance, were among the objects the 4th Count of Carlisle had shipped backfrom Italy. Among these treasures are the altar from the Temple of the Oracle in Delphi. At the top of the stairs is a splendid display of porcelains (note the Dutch tulip vase from 1704). Wander into the Great Hall, Music Room, Tapestry Room and the Long Gallery (with paintings by Van Dyck and Holbein).

    Review information

    • Language: fra
    • Position : As a couple


    Lieu exceptionnel à voir absolument. L’endroit est si mythique qu’il a servi deux fois (1981, 2008) au tournage d’une série TV (1981), puis d’un film (2008) tirés de BRIDESHEAD REVISITED, roman culte d’Evelyn WAUGH, qui se déroule dans l’entre-deux guerres : seul Castle Howard pouvait rendre l’ambiance onirique de ce livre !
