Stately Homes

Used to looking round houses to suit all budgets and tastes, host Phil Spencer is shocked by some of the astronomical bills and lavish interiors in this new series

Presenter Phil Spencer is used to looking round houses to suit all budgets and tastes, but even he is shocked by some of the astronomical bills and lavish interiors in this new series. He’s going behind the scenes at some of the UK’s most extravagant stately homes to discover how they were built and who pays the eye-watering bills that roll in each month. We start at Burghley House, a stunning Elizabethan property set in 1,400 acres of Lincolnshire parkland. Meanwhile, over on C4 (8.00pm), Phil returns with Kirstie Allsopp to peek inside more affordable dwellings in a new series of Location, Location, Location.
