I've been on a few tours here. One was fantastic and very enjoyable. The other was terrible, and all the info didn't match the other tours I had been on. It really depends on how lucky you get with your guide.

The tour guide was amazing-funny, knowledgable and genuinely interested in informing her group. The National Trust has done a great job here and it’s a good way to spend a couple of hours.
