Today, more of Britain's grand houses are open to the public than ever before, from the medieval fastness of Bamberg Castle to the Victorian elegance of Osborne House.

Arranged by region, this sumptuously illustrated book offers an alphabetical guide to almost 200 beautifully preserved historic houses, complete with locator maps, opening times and contact details.

The absorbing text affords an insight into the lives of the houses' owners and builders, and an intriguing glimpse of life above and below stairs.

While many of the houses featured have passed into the care of such organisations as the National Trust, many are still lived in today. Each house is described, with an account of its history, what there is to see now, who has lived there and who lives there today.

Locator maps will help you find each house should you wish to visit.
