Thursday, January 16th, 2020

Through the eyes of host Julie Montagu, Viscountess Hinchingbrooke, viewers will receive an all-access pass to the amazing architecture, aristocratic inhabitants, priceless treasures and best-kept secrets of some of the United Kingdom’s most impressive estates. An all-American girl from Illinois, Julie Montagu moved to London for work, where she met her future husband, Luke. Three months into their relationship, she learned that he was the heir to the Earldom of Sandwich, and upon their marriage, she became Viscountess Hinchingbrooke.

An American Aristocrat’s Guide To Great Estates, starting at 8pm on Tuesday 21st, will follow Viscountess Hinchingbrooke as she visits these lavish homes – from Gloucestershire’s Sudeley Castle to Scotland’s Inveraray Castle to her husband’s own historic family estate in Dorset, Mapperton. Montagu will go beneath the skin of these finely crafted buildings as she discovers the lifestyles of the current owners, staff and craftspeople responsible for maintaining every exquisite detail, revealing what it really takes to maintain such storied estates for future generations.
