There is so much to enjoy at Althorp. Perhaps start your visit with a relaxing walk down a tree lined avenue to the house, enjoy the remodelled gardens and take the opportunity to reflect in the peaceful surroundings of the poignant Round Oval.

Explore nineteen rooms in the house, including some of the Spencer Family's private apartments. Discover magnificent interiors and one of Europe's finest private collections of furniture, paintings and photographs, and ceramics - the result of one family's uninterrupted occupation for over 500 years.

Be touched by the award winning exhibition, Diana: A Celebration. Reflect on the life and work of Diana, Princess of Wales.*
