We were taken round by our guide, Diane who's knowledge of the family, house and contents was incredible. A very interesting couple of hours preceded by an excellent lunch in the cafe. All the staff very extremely fruendly and polite. A lovely way to spend a rainy day in Northamptonshire!

This was an interesting afternoon visit to a beautiful family estate. I learned about some of the Althorp family members while strolling through the house and grands.

Visitors treated as ' guests', very informative tours and a great wealth of history. The family are still there and take a pride in it and this makes the difference. Excellent place to visit, do join HHA!
