The English country House remains a source of great fascination – many of us are enthralled by the stunning architecture, art and historical collections, magnificent gardens and of course the human stories from both upstairs and downstairs. This beautifully illustrated lecture, will look at some of Kenneth's favourite England's finest country houses including Petworth House, Chatsworth, Highclere Castle, Blenheim Palace, Laycock Abbey, Kedleston Hall, Hardwick Hall, Somerleyton Hall and many more.
