Brideshead Revisited (1981 - 2008)


When Brideshead Revisited was first broadcast in 1981 it catapulted Castle Howard into the public eye and today, for many, the house remains synonymous with Evelyn Waugh's iconic novel.

Castle Howard reprised its role as the Marchmain's family home in 2008 when Miramax returned to Yorkshire to shoot Brideshead Revisited, the feature film.

Jeremy Irons, Anthony Andrews and Diana Quick, a new generation of actors, were supported by such figures as Laurence Olivier, Claire Bloom and John Gielgud in the 1981 Granada series. Similarly the 2008 feature film saw younger actors Ben Whishaw, Matthew Goode and Hayley Atwell take centre stage alongside established stars such as Michael Gambon and Emma Thompson. 

Visitors to the house can enjoy our Brideshead Exhibition in the High Saloon rooms.
