Another sunny morning, this one a little frosty.  It was a beautiful morning in Yorkshire.

Castle Howard was a 40 minute drive away on back roads.  Our interior tour was limited by the presence of an ITV crew filming a series about Queen Victoria.  Howard Castle was the setting for the original, and more recent, Brideshead Revisited movies, from the book by E. Waugh.

There were informative Docents throughout the Castle, who we enjoyed interacting with.
