Howard Castle and the county capital - the city of York

On the last day of the trip, we decided to visit two of the places most tourists to Yorkshire visit. The first, Howard Castle, is a fifteen-minute drive from the town of Molton.

Castle Howard

Landmark
Open Details
Howard Castle, the ancestral home of an aristocratic Yorkshire family, is considered one of the finest baroque palaces in Britain. Built in the late 17th century, not all of its splendour has survived to this day. In 1940, a major fire ravaged the house. Fortunately, a collection of paintings, including works by Michelangelo and Gainsborough, and amazing frescoes by the Venetian artist Antonio Pellegrini were able to recover. Now these pieces of art, as well as the blooming rose gardens, arboretum, dense forests, fountains and much more can be seen by all.

After a visit to Howards Castle, we head to the county capital, the city of York. This is the last stop on our journey. Walking in the shadow of the majestic cathedral, glimpsing the age-old Shambles Street, or on the doorstep of Guy Fawkes House, where the pub of the same name now stands, you feel like you're in a medieval film.
