My sister and absolutely enjoyed the day there. It was July 1st, Diana's birthday. We visited the Diana exhibition with her beautiful gowns and wedding clothes on display with fitting music in the background. The Oval lake was beautiful and was able to see the Princess' final resting place on the small island in the middle of the lake where... More

Our visit was all we could wish for. A beautiful sunny day and the tranquility of Althorp was all one could wish for. All the staff should be commended for their kindness and helpfulness. One felt they were all part of the family and certainly Earl Spencer has no airs and graces about him just like his sister Diana. The... More

A lovely tour of the estate, the gardens are fantastic, and a lovely tribute to Lady Diana. The gift shop was fabulous. Highly recommend!

The property is in a really pretty location and the drive to the house from out... More

Me and my husband visited in July of this year (2013). We both enjoyed the exhibition and the grounds were so beautiful. Also loved the stables where we had a bit of lunch. We had our 6week old baby with us and the staff could not have been more helpful when I asked for somewhere I could breastfeed. Whilst my... More

Diana's island... More

By the time we got from the gates, and we were there when it opened, to walking to the cafe all the sandwiches were gone!!! We were told the delivery had not arrived, we went back later and still no sandwiches,... More

Unfortunately the gates do not open until 12noon and the house 1pm and it was a slow single file process paying before we could make our way down to the house and then because we had all arrived for opening time the Diana exhibition was a bit crowded. But slowly the crowds dispersed and with a little patience the whole... More

As Althorp is just 20 minutes away we thought we'd venture out there for a midweek afternoon visit. It's £15.50 entrance fee for adults. The Diana Exhibition is excellent, and on a sunny afternoon the walks around the grounds and to the lake are lovely. The house itself is OK - busy on a midweek Tuesday so at weekend it... More
