Harewood was the biggest commission for local boy Thomas Chippendale and has astonishing interiors by Robert Adam. Temple Newsam and Lotherton hold collections of the decorative arts ranging from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Whilst Newby with its gardens down to the river Ure harbours two rooms which are unique in the world.
