Carlton Towers

Carlton Towers

Carlton Towers is in Carlton (between Selby and Snaith), North Yorkshire, England. It is a Grade I listed Victorian gothic country house designed by Edward Welby Pugin. It is the Yorkshire home of the Duke of Norfolk.

Though the Duke of Norfolk's family still live in part of the house, it is now largely used for wedding receptions and similar events.

The character played by Bernard Cribbins in the 1967 film "Casino Royale" was named "Carlton Towers, CFO" as an in-joke.
