“well worth visiting especially if it rains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Beautifully set up as it was during its heyday as a Downton Abbey-ish home Preston Manor is brilliantly evocative and very beautiful. I really enjoyed it. But it's a bit dull for children

“Where's the Entrance?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

The brochure claims that wheelchair users can visit part of the house. When we arrived by car there is a notice pointing to parking for disabled visitors. We found this but then what? No directions as to where to the entrance to the house could be found. So we gave up and left..

“Ghost hunt - nothing went bump in the night ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

Wonderful house to visit after dark on Preston Manors ghost hunt.
Very well organised, great team & certainly eery enough to expect a spectre arohnd any corner. Despite all of this there was nothing major to report. A few very enthusiastic attendees wanted to see more than was actually there & it was very apparent. A few orbs in the kitchen but thats all.

“Nice estate but not haunted”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

I went for a visit of this very nice estate and gardens today. I was very fascinated by the whole house, gardens, and by the savvy guide who said that the place is not haunted although they advertise it like that for the sake of business. Unfortunately he kind of killed my buzz in that moment... I was expecting the magic to continue with some stories but no... Overall a nice experience and not expensive at all.

“an interesting step back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

This was our second visit and we enjoyed it as much as before. It is fascinating to see how people lived and the most beautiful furniture and artefacts a must for all Downton Abbey fans although not on such a grand scale. You can get a reduced entry if you are a Brighton resident which is such a good idea. It is fairly expensive but well worth it especially for anyone interested in that period of time.
