Yorkshire may contain more magnificent historic houses than any county in Britain. In this webinar—part travelogue, part virtual tour—architectural historian Curt DiCamillo recalls our 2018 American Ancestors heritage tour to Yorkshire, bringing you to some of the best country houses in the region, including, Castle Howard, famous as the starring player in the two filmed versions of "Brideshead Revisited"; Sledmere House, a jewel-like Neoclassical masterpiece still in the ownership of its original family; Newby Hall, a glorious Robert Adam house with a core very likely by Christopher Wren; and the mysterious Wentworth Woodhouse, which boasts the longest façade—650 feet—of any house in Britain. Travel to Yorkshire’s great houses without leaving home!
