I went last night. Left after 15 minutes. Costs £8 per ticket. No candles. Electric lights directly i my eyes. Couldn't see a thing. No view of anything going on at all. Waste of time and money

Visit the Chapel, the quadrangle, the New Building and the deer park. All are stunning and it is easy to imagine oneself living here. No need to pay for a guide - the Porter gives away a very helpful little pamphlet which gives a map...More
