This morning Helen and I visited the most amazing Longleat, home to the Thynne family for nearly 450 years. The long driveway through the estate (more than 2 miles) offered beautiful views of the park woodland and stunning flowers all in Spring bloom.
And then we saw the house...
The house is guarded by a huge statue of a lion. He is beautiful.
The gardens were lovely but it rained on and off.
I was sad I could not take photographs inside the house. The ceilings were spectacular.
Then on to Bath.
