On the last day we went to Wimpole Hall, in Cambridgeshire.
Some of the photos. There are more on my Flickr site.
It's that kind of place.
Entry to the hall and gardens is through the old stables, which is now a visitor's centre and cafe.
And then you reach the house itself.
The view from the front door, looking down the Grand Drive.
Landscape by "Capability" Brown.
The entry hall.
Unlike most manor houses, there were no restrictions on photos inside.
Some of the many thousands of books in the library, collected by the last owner. She was Rudyard Kipling's eldest daughter, and the library contains many first editions.
Anyone for dinner?
The grand stairway
A false door, and the real door. This arrangement was to maintain the room's visual symmetry.
In the chapel
The houskeeper's room
Aaron, a gardener, and the rear gardens.
The gothic folly, built in the mid 1800s
And finally, my souvenirs: a tea mug from Shuttleworth and a pewter Stonehenge from Stonehenge.
And that's it; my trip to England is done.
