Beautiful family estate.

This was an interesting afternoon visit to a beautiful family estate. I learned about some of the Althorp family members while strolling through the house and grands.

I visited Althorp on a sunny day in August with my husband and eleven year old son and, although it was during the summer holidays, it was a very quiet and relaxing trip. We spent a lot of time wandering around the grounds, which are beautifully kept, and the highlight was walking round the lake where Princess Diana is buried.... More

Highlight of highlights, we got to meet Charles Spencer, have a talk and he signed his book. Charles Spencer was everything I expected after watching him during the mourning of his sister Lady Diana. He was also up with current affairs in Australia including the fact that Brisbane had just recently opened a new children's hospital. The fact that the... More

Visitors treated as ' guests', very informative tours and a great wealth of history. The family are still there and take a pride in it and this makes the difference. Excellent place to visit, do join HHA!

The parking lot is quite a distance from the house - for those who have mobility issues, but the drive up to the house is beautiful with trees reportedly donated by Prince Charles. The Earl was doing a 15 minute book signing in the gift shop when we arrived and that was fun to see. The house is magnificent. Rich... More

We began our day by taking the lovely walk down the path towards the house, it was very refreshing with nice views. When we reached the cafe and shop building, what I think was dubbed 'the stables' we were pleasantly surprised. The staff in the cafe were lovely and as was the food! We then headed over to the house... More

Wonderful location near to Northampton, a beautiful mansion set in a large park full of marvellous oak trees. There is a good walk from the car park to the house, though those with mobility issues may take cars close to the house. The house tour is included in the admission fee, conducted by one of the excellent and knowledgeable guides,... More
