In his final journey to explore what our taste says about us, Grayson Perry lives amongst the upper classes of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire, and meets The Marquess of Bath and Longleat and bohemian Detmar Blow.

'A sucker,' as he admits, 'for a crumbly old stately home,' Grayson is interested in analysing the continuing hold that upper-class taste still has on the British imagination, and wants to know whether it's still something the rest of us should aspire to.

He finds that upper-class taste can be as much a burden as a blessing. The reverence of the people he meets for tradition, ancestral inheritance and appropriateness makes Grayson wonder whether that makes it more difficult to develop taste of their own.

Turning instead to the 'new money' incomers who are increasingly buying up the Cotswolds stately homes, he asks why we assume that their taste is somehow worse than the old aristocrats' taste.

Finally, Grayson invites all of the contributors he has met to the unveiling of the tapestries he has made about their taste.

As owners of magnificent old houses, they know plenty about tapestries, but Grayson's 21st-century take on the tapestry tradition - with his own very personal take on their taste - proves very different from the tapestries they're used to.
