Over the years I have visited many stately homes, museums, galleries and palaces in a range of countries. I'm afraid the quality of the tour today was the worst I have ever experienced. The guide read from notes and her communication and literacy skills would have made it difficult for a foreign visitor to understand. I appreciate that the guides do thus on a voluntary basis but training must be given to ensure visitors are informed in a lively and informative way. The house and it's architecture is interesting but the lack of furniture and furnishings means that the guides must be able to paint a picture to stimulate the imagination. With advanced booking, I had expected a tour of the property to be something special and to be only shown 4/5 rooms was very disappointing and not value for money.
