I spent a lovely afternoon with a friend visiting Althorp and it was very interesting. We took the free guided tour and the lady who showed us around was very knowledgeable . The house is beautiful and of course we walked down to the lake where Diana's memorial is. We had lunch in the stables cafe each of us had... More

My wife has always wanted to visit Princess Diana's burial site but every time we were in London, over the last many years, it was not open when we were there. Fortunately on this trip Althorp was open when we were in London so we planned our visit. We obtained our entrance tickets online before our visit which made things... More

We were at Althorp House for a car show over the weekend and booked a tour of the house. The staff were well organised and made our arrival and visit a pleasant experience. Inside the house you are given a comprehensive tour and are fully involved in the history of the Spencer family through the ages. There is a lot... More

Great reception and helpful staff throughout visit. Really enjoyed the aristocratic history tour through this famous house. The Rembrants, Stubbs and Lely were excellent. Guide was informative. As a memorial and pilgrimage to Diana there may be unfulfilled expectations. I enjoyed the museum rooms but there was no great depth to what could have been the "Diana experience" There were...

Really nice afternoon out , guided tour around housecwhomtells you all, about the paintings etc and the Spencer's slightly disappointed in the grounds as I thought there would be more flowers etc. Island where Dianna is is lovely. One criticism is when we had our tour the other staff where exceptionally loud when we where trying to hear what the... More

The guided tour of the house was excellent and took about 1hour and 15 mins. Luckily we visited on a sunny day and enjoyed walking in the gardens. The exhibition areas in the Stables were also very interesting. It takes a good 5 mins to walk down to the stables from the car park but if you are disabled you... More

We visited the Althorp Estate this week which I have to say was rather disappointing. However the staff were very friendly and the guide for the house well experienced in its history but too much emphasis was placed on the many portraits. Diana hardly got a mention. The grounds, although well-kept, were rather bland and plain, not what we have... More

We visited last week as part of the Porche GB weekend and took the opportunity to visit the house. Discounted rate of £16 was much appreciated and well worth every penny. The collection of art is superb and beautifully displayed in this gorgeous house that feels loved and lived in. The room guides were brilliant and not only did they... More

We travelled to Althorp during the school holiday period and given its limited opening times, were prepared for it to be busy, so we're surprised to see just a handful of cars in the car park. Car parking is a little way from the actual house so allow 10 minutes to walk to the property. Entrance fee is £18.50 per... More

What a beautiful house set in wonderful grounds. The guided tour of the house is a must. Incredible collection of paintings. The history of the family is marvellous and there is a great portrait of Princess Diana.
