Castle Howard is a stately home in North Yorkshire, England, 15 miles north of York. It is a private residence, and has been the home of the Carlisle branch of the Howard family for more than 300 years. Although building work began in 1699, the construction of Castle Howard took over 100 years to complete, spanning the lifetimes of three Earls. It is familiar to television and film audiences as the fictional “Brideshead“, both in Granada Television‘s 1981 adaptation of Evelyn Waugh‘s Brideshead Revisited and a two-hour 2008 remake for cinema, produced with investment from Screen Yorkshire. Today, it is part of the Treasure Houses of England group of heritage houses.
