Beautiful grounds

We spent a pleasant day here. There is lots to see and plenty to do. Being the school holidays, it was busy but still ran smoothly thanks to the staff.

I liked the smell of history in a beautiful castle, very well maintained and organized. I did not like the incessant rain

We only visited as we had a Groupon voucher. We saw there was an event on for Halloween so decided to go for that. It was only after we got to there that we saw on the terms and conditions of the voucher that it wasn't valid for Halloween weekend, so we left the voucher in the car. When we... More

For the third year running, I helped at this walk, helping to run the merchandise stall and later on giving out medals.

The minute we arrived at car park the attendant was very helpful and informative, the next person we met was the attendant at the entrance of the palace who also was very good and full of information.

Lovely palace with lots of interesting rooms and artefacts. It is very grand inside.

Great staff and not very crowded. The gardens and the paths around the place are gorgeous and the nice little cafe in the basement serves a nice tea and even gluten free cake options

It was a nice place to spend a couple of hours. The Palace was quite interesting to look round if you are interested, a lot of family photos which didn't interest us. The gift shop and food gift shop were selling the usual things jam, tea etc. Butterfly garden is lovely. Our kids did really enjoy feeding the peacocks with... More
