I visited Highclere Castle with my Mother, via a coach trip, I must say i have seen a lot better stately homes.
We went in to the Egyption Exhibition that took 5 minutes not much to see everone's cramped in small dark rooms so dark that you could not see the items which where not even real a plastic mummy. staff are very up them selves instead of doing their job's.
We then went on into house took 10 minutes about 5 rooms worth seeing the rest you just had to look through the door was one narrow staircase. 1940's furniture nothing posh, ripped seat covers wallpaper hanging off and cracked and it looked like it had not seen a sheen of polish in years and smelt fouisty.
The gardens are worth seeing but not very well sign posted for directions and not enough flowers shrubs i would not pay for this.
The cafe's 3 of them very small where not run very good lack of seating area trays of pots pilling up and when the foreign woman did come to take the pots she was taking away my mother pot of tea which i only just bought and the seats where coverd in pots £6.00 for a Chicken salad box, £1.65 for a can no propper food. I would advise taking a packed lunch instead but i'll never go back.
