  • Beautiful gardens with lakes. Very well maintained. Palace state rooms are a must visit. Exhibitions were interesting - must purchase state rooms tour to access exhibitions. Cafes are good, providing a good selection of snacks including sandwiches. Staff are friendly and helpful. Gift shop has lots to offer.
  • Stunning! An absolute must see. Impressive and well presented grounds and gardens. The Palace is probably one of the best preserved and beautifully kept houses I've seen. Staff clearly love the house and its history and happily share this with visitors. So lovely to see. Loved reading the details about Winston Churchill and his family, and recommend going to see his and the family graves. Would most definitely return, keep a full day free, you'll need it.
