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

We’ve been to many of the great homes, castles and palaces in the London area but never to Althorp. After visiting Spencer House in St. James Place last year, we had to come to the family seat -- we’re so happy we did. We must have seemed barbaric Americans because we arrived at 14:30 (2:30p) when the last tour is... More

The estate is quite wonderful, a relaxing place to be. The guided tour of the house is also very interesting. However I'm sure i speak for many with the disappointment at the memorial area for Diana is a bit of a disappointment. All her dresses etc have been taken away, and i'm sure much more with what she was identified... More

The beautiful walk up to the house surrounded by sheep was delightful. As soon as you enter this outstanding stately home & it grounds you feel a warm, friendly loving atmosphere not stuffy at all. I was taken ill during the tour of the house all staff could not do enough for me, especially Olivia. Unfortunately I had to leave... More

Of course one of the reasons for a visit here the resting place of Princess Diana but the House and grounds are now used for some good fixtures. Can recommend both but open hours are limited so check first.

You visit Althorp House (Princess Diana's home and resting place) via a guided tour which lasts one hour. As is usual with these stately homes, you only get to see a small number of rooms but we found it interesting nonetheless. However, our visit was marred by 2 small children crying and being very bored while the guide was speaking..... More

A very grand house, and lovely that so much of the house is available to view. Obviously a lot of money has gone into the upkeep, with this being one of the better homes we have seen under the HHA scheme. The Princess Diana connection is highlighted throughout the tour, and this was the main reason so many people visit,... More
