This property is one of (if not the only) private 'palaces' in London. Its worth a look for that reason alone, and even more so if you have fond memories of Princess Diana. Although she did not live there it was owned by her family.
This unique and remarkable property has been superbly restored by a very generous benefactor but be aware that the contents are largely sourced from other houses.
To inspect the house you must join a guided tour. Tours are only available on Sundays. And thats where the problem lies. Our tour guide peppered her tour with personal stories and irrelevant details and made it a frustrating 90 minutes. The tour would have been as informative and more enjoyable if there had been less self-indulgent waffle and a faster pace. At an average of between 10 and 15 minutes per room it could have been over in half the time.
Think hard about whether this is for you.
