I posted photos of the exterior of Auckland Castle/Palace and of its chapel here.

Proceeding from the chapel into the Palace proper you come into the impressive Bishop’s Throne Room:-

The Castle/Palace interior has been updated/redecorated over the years and some of the older fixtures and fittings have been kept.

I can’t now remember if this stained glass window was in the chapell or elsewhere:-

Eventually the route through the Castle takes you to the Dining Room where the Zurbaran paintings are kept.
