Castle Howard Park

Highly recommended
The park is one of the greatest surviving examples of the golden age of landscaping. Various different compositions display views and architectural follies to best effect: the gateway into the park; the fountain of Atlas (to the south); the lake surrounded by masses of multi-coloured rhododendrons; the avenue lined by classical Greek sculpture (copies) leading to the Temple of the Four Winds; and finally, beyond the cascade and pretty bridge, Hawksmoor's colonnaded mausoleum crowns the horizon.
