The Duke of Northumberland's London home, the only surviving ducal residence and country estate in Greater London, is right out of BBC costume drama territory, down to its 40 acres of Capability Brown gardens, 200 acres of parkland and magnificent Renaissance house. Indeed, if it looks familiar, it's probably because you'll have seen it on various TV shows, most recently the Beeb's 'Great British Bake Off' and Stephen Poliakoff's drama 'Dancing on the Edge.' On occasional Sundays and holidays under-16s can visit for free (maximum of two free tickets per paying adult); in 2013 these are May 5 and 6, May 26 and 27, and daily from Sunday July 21 to Thursday August 29. Note that the house and gardens are closed from August 30 to September 7.

Overshadowed by its front neighbour the wonderful Kew Garden, Syon park is easily forgotten. But if you’re into history and beautifully restored great houses, you’ll be delighted. The interiors are stunning and the park, if small, is really nice on sunny days.

If slightly too small to justify a whole trip there if you live far away, I’d recommend you do a little detour if you’re in the area.
