We went on a coach trip to Boughton House and on arrival were split into two groups our group were guided by a lady who was, to be blunt very dictatorial had no sense of humour and even glared when some of us dared to speak! I do appreciate that this lady is a volunteer but if the information cannot be given in a friendly way then it really detracts from the visit. Our other group had a completely different story to tell and all thoroughly enjoyed their experience which proves the point of my title!
The house itself had some lovely paintings, furniture and pottery but the management team could do with lessons from the National Trust on presentation and lighting. The grounds are very impressive and major works are being done outside. The highlight of the visit was seeing Red Kites soaring low above us at close range.
