Just 15 minutes outside of York is Castle Howard.
Wander around the ornate gardens and perfectly manicured landscaped grounds with fountains, lakes, and trails. The main house is also open for tours. So worth it! ▪️
Shown here is the "summer house" overlooking a scenic and vast valley, about a 10 minute walk away from the house. From the edge overlooking the valley, everything you see is part of the property. With some of it being rented out to farmers.
My third time in London finally took me inside the Houses of Parliament. I'd only ever toured American government buildings before this, so I was fascinated by how things worked in the UK. I felt like taking notes on the tour because there's so much we can learn from how they do things over there. The architecture was also a dream -- I kept looking for Harry Potter. I didn't find him 😟 ••TELL ME: have you ever visited a government building?
This sexy spiral staircase is in the Lighthouse, Glasgow, a contemporary art museum. It was the first commission of the famous Scottish architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
