Hovingham Hall is an outstanding example of Palladian architecture, designed c1760 by Thomas Worsley its owner, eventually replacing an earlier house on the site.

The unique feature is that the house is entered through an enormous riding school where Thomas Worsley trained his horses, now used for concerts and other events. On the far (western) side, the windows of the hall look out onto the famous private cricket ground, where most of the greatest Yorkshire cricketers have played.
