How the ladies got up and down the narrow spiral staircases in their long dresses is hard to imagine. We were caught up with a coach party of Italians. We decided to wait until... More

Visited this property as I'm interested in history, it sadly is not disability friendly, I could only browse the ground floor and read related articles.

This was good. The kids were entertained by funding the stuffed dogs. I wished there was a abridged version of the audio tour it dragged on a bit. Overall interesting.
