We had a wonderful Saturday visit! Easy to park, each and every member of the staff were wonderful from the welcome we were given when we arrived, the coffee shop and gift shop! The guides in the palace itself were outstanding, each one had lots of information to impart and were very welcoming (not boring in the slightest!!!) We had... More

Lovely grounds with lots to explore, my little one loved the maze and the adventure play area. We didn't go into the palace as we had our dog with us but we had a lovely time in the gardens

A very enjoyable and relaxing way to spend a few hours. Lovely grounds and gardens with good walks and a house packed with history, and very helpful and informative staff.

As time was of the essence, we only stopped for a walk around the grounds and a cuppa. The grounds were beautifully maintained with a peacock or two wandering around the grounds. Morning tea - hubby had to have a scone with jam and cream and I had the lime cheesecake. Both were generous in their servings and ooh...delectable!

Scone Palace is not to be missed. take your time as you walk through each room that is beautifully appointed and decorated - be sure to ask the staff to share any information they have (it's the best way to get information). Be sure to view the short film at the end of the tour for more history. Not to... More

took 2 of our grandchildren and though they weren't to interested in the inside of the palace they loved the open spaces the animals eg.donkeys peacocks and a little adventure playground. We found the inside of the palace very interesting but worried about little hands touching things. Was glad to get them outside.

A lovely day trip out. Make sure you allocate time to walk around the gardens, and of course do the maze! The palace itself is stunning, and the cream tea was the best I have tasted as yet! A definate addition to the list of things to do if your in the area
