In this episode, I take my first trip to Temple Newsam, a beautiful Tudor house set in acres of stunning parkland. I'm joined by two guides, Robert Lee and Rebecca Allott, who share their wealth of knowledge on the fantastic history that surrounds this spectacular Tudor place. A hunting park in Tudor times, the vast amount of land surrounding the house gives Temple Newsam a rural feel, despite its location near to the city of Leeds. Built by Thomas, Lord Darcy between 1500 and 1520, join me as I explore this hidden Tudor gem, discovering just what it was like back in Tudor times.
