Episode Summary

Burghley House
Considered England's greatest Elizabethan House, Burghley in Lincolnshire was begun in the 1500s by the queen's Lord High Treasurer and subsequently filled with pieces collected by his descendants during their tours of Europe. Among the finest is a pietra dura cabinet, a gift from the Medici family. The home also boasts a specially lowered state bed made for the famously short Queen Victoria.moreless
