The hall is very interesting and the guides were very helpful when asked any questions. The grounds were pleasant to walk through and they have a little gem of a cafe, definitely recommend a cheese scone especially straight out of the oven.

A marvellous place to visit as it is steeped in history and gave its name to the first president of the U.S.A. and its capital city. What an achievement for a building in this Washington situated in the North east of England.
