I was a huge fan of Princess Diana while growing up. I remember watching her funeral on TV and my Mom even recorded it on a VHS tape, which I still have. So when my friend and I decided to go to England I knew I wanted to visit her childhood home and burial site. The tour of the house... More

Visiting Althorp House has been a dream for a long time, and I finally got the chance in the summer 2015. The obvious link to Princess Diana was a factor, however I was more interested in the house itself. The fact that there is a limited number of tickets available made it a very hassle free experience, lots of parking... More

I had always wanted to visit Althorp House for many many years and when I finally got the chance...I loved it. The house itself is set in vast acres of beautiful gardens and inside is just as impressive. There are several guides situated throughout the house who are always very helpful and knowledgeable. I myself didn't ask them any questions... More

Forget the historical connections with a certain lady. This house is such a lovely, peaceful home with quiet and tranquil gardens. Loved it and hope to return sometime.

We had a new guide who had really done her homework. She really added to the splendour of the house with her historical addition and comentry.

A wonderful place to visit to satisfy the royalist in you. A definite love in the throat when seeing the final resting place of the People's Princess

For anyone who is remotely interested in visiting an English estate in general or the ancestral home of Princess Diana, Althorp is well worth the trip. The spectacular estate is filled with priceless artwork and history. Contrary to being called "The People's Princess", Diana came from an extremely wealthy, aristocratic family - Nine generations of Earls. It is a fascinating... More
