|Subject: Re: U.K. trip|
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 http://www.yorkshire-tour.co.uk for some info and another good site which gives opening hours, prices etc. is http://www.dalesman.co.uk
Hope this is of some help and if I get any more info I'll pass it along.
