A  personally curated four-day tour to Yorkshire privately visiting a number of special houses and some must-sees including Castle Howard and York Minster.

Our visit includes; a private tour at Markenfield Hall (main picture) one of the most memorable houses I’ve visited in over 12 years of organising tours; a private early visit to Castle Howard with the curator and access to the Howard family’s archive; a private tour at Hovingham Hall – family home of the Duchess of Kent; a private tour at Burton Agnes which has a fabulous collection of Post Impressionist art; Scampston Hall with an award-winning contemporary garden and a tour of York Minster with a special ‘Behind the Scenes’ demonstration given by the Master Mason.
