We've passed Wentworth Woodhouse many times on walks over the years as we live locally, so we were thrilled to find it was now open for tours.
We had a lovely sunny day and enjoyed seeing the friendly BBC film crew at their work too.
I disagree with the last reviewer, as what we loved was seeing the house in its transition, before all the rooms have been restored, and I much prefer to have no furniture than rooms crammed with 'period' furniture with no attachment to the house.
We had a great tour guide who was informative about both the history of the house and the restoration work being carried out.
They have even put a little cafe in near the entrance, which we didn't visit as we had a meal ready at home, but a cup of tea and a cake would have been welcome otherwise.
The sheer size of the house and the columns, and the elaborate ceilings and plasterwork, and the beautiful marble floor in the Marble Hall were all very impressive.
It was also great to be able to chat, on the way out, to a gentleman who has worked on the estate for the past 42 years.
The friends we brought along loved the tour and we would definitely bring other friends here.
