Hi Adrian:

Your question on Beverley - my personal feeling is that a good day there would be sufficient.

I think you mentioned staying in York. If you happen to be there on a Sunday and there is an evening service in the Minister I'm told it should not be missed - the choirboys are wonderful.

Sorry I can't help you on the four houses/halls you mention. Last year I was taken to Castle Howard (N.Yorks) and just loved it - I find there's quite a difference when you visit a stately home that is still lived in by the family - a nice feeling. You could check for some info and another good site which gives opening hours, prices etc. is

Hope this is of some help and if I get any more info I'll pass it along.
