List of family seats of English nobility

This is an incomplete index of the current and historical principal family seats of English royal, titled and landed gentry families. Some of these seats are no longer occupied by the families with which they are associated, and some are ruinous – eg. Lowther Castle.

This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.
