Have spent the day at Anne of Cleves House today for a photo shoot. The staff there bent over backwards to help. Wonderful place full of character and an amazing backdrop for our photo shoot. Thank you Anne of Cleves House.

The house was moderately interesting, but many people complained the name is misleading. The iron works housed I side are very impressive.
