Althorp is a beautiful family home. There is an upcoming book festival and usually a Country Fair, later in the year. Parking is good and the grounds very accessible. It is a very well kept Country Estate and a pleasure to visit.

This was a second visit. First visited Althorp House some 50 years ago, didn't take long to decide won't be back again. Sorry about this folks but here are the reasons:- 1. Entrance fee of £18. Visit limited to 4 hours between 1pm & 5pm. 2. Tour of the house was limited to say the least. 3. Knew in advance... More

This was a lovely day out, with a huge house to look around and a tour guide to show you around. The tour lasted about an hour and if I'm honest this did go on a bit. The walk to the lake is about five minutes from the house. I did enjoy seeing the lake but was a little shocked... More

Althorp house make a lovely day out. I went with my mum and sister and it was a perfect day. The house itself is packed with history and beautiful rooms and gardens. When we went the Diana exhibition was on show but I think it's now gone (that was the main reason why we went). I wouldn't recommend it for... More

We spent a very pleasant afternoon at Althorp. The house is very much a home and it feels like it. Interesting tour in quite small groups which is good, although it would be nice to walk around on your own. Beautiful interior, and as much as I loved Princess Diana, it is good that this angle is not over featured.... More

This is definitely an 'Adults only' place, as there is absolutely nothing for children. The car park is across the road from the entrance gates, which means quite a hike to the house. I found the house aesthetically pleasing, but the grounds quite dull. There were some nice old trees. The grass was neatly cut, but that's all there was... More

This is a first class day out, viewing the house and the gardens. Every year they have an open air musical event celebrating the Battle of Waterloo with Cavalry charges and also 150 live canon are fired. A great experience and the owner is also a vey nice and approachable indivdual.
