A lovely day out. Some very impressive rooms and exquisite decor. Has a modern art exhibition at the moment, which seemed out of place as lots of the paintings covered fire places and actually spoilt the overall experience. We particularly did not like the ‘displays’...More

So many people commented negatively about the modern 'art' that litters every room, completely spoiling the atmosphere and we have to agree - give it its own separate space and stop ruining years of history with this trash! Otherwise our visit was good - staff...More

Great day exploring the grounds and ornamental gardens, then tour the palace and Winston Churchill’s history, finish this off with a great afternoon tea in the orangery restaurant, and a little shopping it’s a fantastic experience.
