Love visiting country houses or museums? Or haven’t been to one in a while? Don’t worry, we are bringing one to you!
Rediscover the intellectual and cultural value of art through a close encounter with objects from the historic collection at Castle Howard.
Our panel of experts will examine rarely seen works from the collection from four very different perspectives, offering new insights into the many questions that art raises.
Situated on a 9,000-acre estate, Castle Howard is a historic house and garden near York that is open to the public. The Howard family has lived in Castle Howard ever since it was built over 300 years ago. Successive generations have welcomed visitors to the house and today it is visitors’ continuing support that makes possible the endless tasks of restoration and conservation.
