12 days of Christmas Tour
Jan 2020
This was a great tour. Everyone was in costume and played their parts well while telling us about the castle and also allowing us to look for the 12 different trees. Some of the program is very funny and yet you can see the history of the place. I would have liked longer to study the artifacts, but since it is still in use by the Royals, it is not a surprise that you have to be guided carefully through each place The gardens and grounds are magnificent and the cafe is very good. Definitely well worth a visit!
