Wentworth Woodhouse in South Yorkshire has the largest frontage of any stately home in Europe and is said to be the inspiration for Pemberley in “Pride and Prejudice”. The roof is currently being replaced so National Trust are conducting roof tours which last around one hour.

There is a lift to get to the top and the whole tour is accessible by anyone using a wheelchair.

The tour was fascinating and fun too. There is a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside.

Afterwards I can recommend the tea rooms inside the house. You do not have to pay to enter the house in order to use the tea rooms.

    You can book online for the roof tour which takes around one hour.
    There are lots of different tours of the house and gardens. Details are on the website.
    The house has been used as a film set for "Downton Abbey", "Victoria", "Gentleman Jack" among others.
    National trust England members get 50% off the tours.

    This sounds great fun. How long do the tours take and do you have to book?

    How much of the house is open for you to look round, and what is there to see in it?
