  • A great place to go if you want a bit of culture. Not usually open but when we went it was a lovely place.  more »
  • This beautiful Country House has a very fine selection of outstanding paintings but the place is never open except for rare occasions in the summer  more »
  • One has a guided tour of Althorp and we were in a very small group. Most of the tour focuses on the paintings, especially as the house itself is not that interesting. Our guide was excellent and some ...  more »

  • A lovely and well maintained estate, which is the ancestral home of Princess Diana. Only about an hour north of London. The tour lasted about an hour, and takes place every 30 minutes. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable! Be aware that no photos are allowed to be taken in the house. However, you can purchase a program for a reasonable £5. Be sure to visit the lake and island where Diana is buried. Also note that Lord Spencer makes short appearances and signs his books which can be purchased at the bookstore. We were lucky enough to meet him today. The toilets are fabulous - large, clean and numerous. The cafe had a nice, but limited selection of sandwiches, drinks, desserts and soup. Tip:. If arriving by train, take a taxi to the main visitors entrance, which will take about 15 minutes and cost about £20. Also take note that there is no exhibition of dresses currently on site.
  • Quality day out. Beautiful grounds and walks. You may catch The Earl Spencer signing books in the gift shop.
  • Beautiful grounds and good food available at the cafe.
  • Just having a good feeling of Arriving at Princess Diana homestead
  • I go there every year, as I adoooooooooore Princess Diana.
