Synopsis

The Stately Houses, Palaces and Castles of Georgian, Victorian and Modern Britain From George I to Elizabeth II, 1714 to the Present Day; with 200 Magnificent Photographs, Paintings, Reconstructions a by Charles Phillips, Richard G. Wilson

Discover Britain's magnificent heritage of country houses in this lavishly illustrated guide to the architectural treasures of the United Kingdom. Spanning the years from 1714 to the start of the 21st century, this book includes the period's finest examples of architecture, such as Blenheim Palace, Arundel Castle and Clarence House. An in-depth guide to the history of every house features information on its design, construction and the stories of its best-known inhabitants, as well as profiles of celebrated architects. Timelines and maps trace the development of Britain's architectural legacy, while a glossary introduces key terms and an A-Z listing make it easy to find every property listed. This complete reference book will delight and inform in equal measure.
