The Cazalets is a 2001 six-episode television drama series (5 episodes when broadcast in the US) about the life of a large privileged family in the years 1937 to 1947.

Most of the action takes place in London, and at the family’s large estate in Sussex.


In 1937, the extended Cazalet family get together for their annual six week summer holiday at the family seat, Home Place, in Sussex. Patriarch William Cazalet, affectionately called The Brig, travels down from London to be with his wife Duchy, his three sons Edward, Hugh and Rupert, his daughter Rachel and their wives, children and friends. The Brig and sons Hugh and Edward invite the younger Rupert to join the family timber firm but he declines, preferring to concentrate on his painting. Rupert is married to Zoe and has two children from his first marriage.
