Wentworth Woodhouse, near Rotherham
Wentworth Woodhouse is one of the largest stately homes in Europe and is set in 87 acres of private gardens and grounds. It has one of the longest facades in the UK, which is a fantastic example of 18th century Baroque style.
The current house was built for the 1st Marquess of Rockingham and later became the home of the Fitzwilliam family. In Gentleman Jack, the impressive Marble Saloon with its chequerboard floor is used for the interior of Rawson’s Bank.
Several guided tours are available, including one with Bob, a member of staff who served the Fitzwilliams here nearly 50 years ago.
Wentworth Woodhouse is open Tuesday to Sunday. To plan your visit and book tickets, click here.
