We have done a few tours at Wentworth Woodhouse over the past couple of years, and it is a fantastic place to visit. The guides are knowledgeable and bring the place to life. It is one of the most impressive and interesting houses in the country. Some of the rooms, plus the main staircase, really need to be seen. This... More

We visited as a family . 4 adults and 2 children. We had known about Wentworth Woodhouse for a while having visited the stable block for events and the local area. However this was the first time in the house. We booked the Fitzwilliam tour for £20 adults and £5 kids. (March - so no garden tour) . The tour... More

Can't comment on things like the admission prices because I visited the place in January, on a Ghost Hunt with TV's Most Haunted. Apparently, they use Wentworth Woodhouse a lot for these things, and it truly is a wonderful set of buildings, the biggest stately home in Britain, I believe. If you do visit at night, looking for spooks, be... More

I went on the 2 hour tour with Reg the tour guide. I was apprehensive as I thought 2 hours may have been too long for a single tour but Reg the tour guide was not only an walking encyclopaedia of knowledge on the house and its history but he was also funny and thoroughly entertaining. Top marks Reg. What... More

This magnificent house is in a raw state but brought brilliantly to life by a very enthusiastic volunteer guide Reg. Amazing look into an opulent & unbelievably wealthy past. Left with tantalising questions about what the future holds for this huge dinosaur of a building which is such an integral part of our social history.

We did the Stratford Tour which took just under 2 hours. Reg our tour guide was very interesting and brought the house to life. Fascinating to listen to. The house has had such a history and the restoration is returning it to it's former glory. The chandelier alone is worth the very reasonable tour fee of £15.00. The Stafford tour... More

Astounding, been promising ourselves a visit for some time and finally got around to it.The guides Reg and Jenny. Reg so full of enthusiasm and rightly so, the 2 hour tour just flew and his knowledge just unbelievable, his joy is infectious, not that we needed it. The history behind this magnificent building truly fascinating. It's not furnished but thoroughly... More
