Castle Howard

See I don't always sleep on the sofa

*******

Next place on our list to visit
 Castle Howard
The house and grounds appeared in Brideshead the TV Serial and the film Brideshead Revisited.
 Its one of England’s grandest mansions, we have photos of 
The Atlas Fountain and the Temple of the four winds. 
Climbed on the steps when there are signs saying not to!!
The Weather was not that good, misty rain on and off, but we still had a good time.
The first photo is the drive way to get to it!! 
























































Happy Holidays

Very nice! It surprises me that dogs are allowed on the grounds.

Great photos of you two! My little sister Caoimhe keeps saying 'I've seen that - I've been there' because she knows I've not been yet and she has :-( BUT my peeps have got a year's pass now and said they will take us all along later this year - it's so good to have a place like that which welcomes dogs.

What a wonderful time! I just love the shots of the lots and lots and lots of grass. I keep picturing the pawsome boxer burns I could do on that lawn! :D

George they are some steps and we loved the fountain shot. What you walked around without a teddy bear tribute to Brideshead Revisited's Sebastian Flyte? Have a great Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

Gosh George, I can see that you and Tess were most energetic and thorough in your inspection of Castle Howard. No wonder you had a little lie down at the very end.
Toodle pip!

Oh George, I have been to Castle Howard! I loved that place, but it would have been even more fun if you'd been there too, at the same time. You and Tess made all the pics of Castle Howard even better. :-)

Oh I could stay in those gardens all day and to leave pee mail on all the green grass. But I do think you need to throw a blanket over the statue.
Thanks for being a friend

It's nice that those beautiful grounds are dog friendly, but really how do they expect doggies to be able to read the signs :-)

Castle Howard and the landscape are so beautiful! I would love to go inside that castle and have a look around.

Did you even get/send your Doggone Dog swap?

Amazing location, it's been decades since I was last here, I must rectify that after being inspired here... great stuff.
