Serpentine: Go Back

GO BACK an installation that dares you to enter, at London's Serpentine Gallery in 2015. I cannot remember the artist but this was the only thing I liked of his.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ornate

Architect Charles Barry's country house Highclere - better known now as "Downton Abbey"
Architect Charles Barry’s country house Highclere (view of back)  – more famous as the “Downton Abbey” filming location.

Highclere Castle was designed by Charles Barry (1795 – 1860) who, in the same style,  remodelled The Houses of Parliament in London.

Highclere Castle is a country house in the Jacobethan style, in a park designed by Capability Brown.  Located near the village of Highclere, in Hampshire, England, UK – It was the seat of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon.

Carnarvon, along with Carter, famously discovered the Tomb of the Pharaoh, Tutankhamun.  The Castle itself houses one of the most important collections of Egyptology in Britain, outside the British Museum.  It is open for public viewing during the Summer.  However Highclere has become more of a tourist attraction in the last few years because it was the main filming location for the period drama Downton Abby.   Before that it was the film set for the British comedy series Jeeves and Wooster with acting duo Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.
