A rare opportunity to visit Magnificent Wentworth Woodhouse plus the Archbishop of York's Palace, Southwell Minster and historic Newark

  • A Rare opportunity to visit Magnificent Wentworth Woodhouse, one of the largest houses in Europe and with a frontage wider than Buckingham Palace.  It’s two houses of totally different architectural styles built by the First Marquess of Rockingham in 1725. The west front of the house in the baroque style and the east front in the later Palladian style. It stands in 250 acres of park and with its East Front of over 600 feet. The house was sold in 2017 for £7m following a 5 year campaign by the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust who have embarked on a major project to restore the house. We take a tour of the formal house and gardens

  • Beautiful Southwell Minster The 900 year old Minster is the jewel in Nottinghamshire’s crown.  Recognised by Nikolaus Pevsner for its architectural beauty, its graceful interior, stained glass and unique pepper-pot towers, which all combine to give an atmosphere of calm and elegance.

The stories of those who lived and worked here in the 1840s help bring the building to life.
