Visited during hot summer weather, was so surreal and peaceful place to be. We enjoyed a family picnic and walking through the beautiful surroundings of the property and Lady Dianà mémorial. Well worth it!

We were so grateful Althorp House was open and we were able to visit in a very covid-safe manner. Had a lovely discussion with staff about the history and books written by Earl Spencer. Thank you

A while ago, during beautiful August month, I visited with Alex the beautiful Spencer Estates, the place where Princess Diana was born and rests in peace. As we walked in through the gate, to pay for the entrance is £14 pp (not cheap), we entered a grand walkway with secular trees that have been taken care of. Every tree had a number which meant one thing - preservation. By the way, I love this type of standardisation which I saw it being used very often in England. As we continued walking being amazed about the perfection of the cut grass height, we arrived in front of the estate. The house at Althorp was a "classically beautiful" red brick. In 1788, the architect Henry Holland added the mathematical_tile to cover the bricks. We did not manage to enter the estate, as it was closed due to COVID19, so we continued our walk towards the Oval. And there we have found a mix of colours and peace, a mix of sadness and proudness to have met Princess Diana's spirit. I stood there for about 10 minutes just starring at the middle of the Oval where Princess Diana rests in peace. It's impossible not to feel her spirit there. Even the sky, the grass and the insects were talking. There were moments of powerful energy. After a while, I started speaking with Andy, the manager of the Estate. We had a wonderful conversation about Princess Diana, humanity impact, the greediness that humanity is going through, the fact that we are not rising our eyes to sky often enough to say thank you and the power of family values. It was a bliss speaking to him. He promised me when we come next time in 2021, he will be our guide inside the estate. I can't wait to come back there and walk through the same alleys Diana walked trough. On the way out, I stopped by the oak tree planted by Nelson Mandela. At the end of the visit, a secular tree has invited to hug. So I did and spend couple of good minutes hugging it. It was like hugging Princess Diana. I felt a feminine energy running through the tree. It was comforting. I felt you. Can't wait to come back.

Recently Althorp house offered free entry to NHS staff. This was for the outside of the manor due to Covid. My wife and I both work for the NHS and it was a very welcomed treat to see such a place. Yesterday we visited the property with high expectations. Well Althorp house didn't disappoint! The grounds were immaculately maintained. The memorial to Princess Diana was poignant and respectful. The house and stables were grandeur and a stunning, giving us both a glimpse into what life must of been like in the past. Whilst walking by the house we were met by Andy the house manager who was polite, pleasent and engaging. He gave us a brief insight into the Spencer's life today. We were invited to return next year where the house will be open. Truly can't wait for next year. Thank you Andy and Earl Spencer.
