Fabulous opera, fabulous weather, fabulous friends. Always such a treat to come here. The middle and over wallop (!) restaurant always reliable and the parking system seems to have had a revamp, so it is much easier to leave at the end of the evening

Glyndebourne is a British institution and has been for many years. The standard of the opera is always good, with great singers and orchestra, and comfortable seats. On a fine day, it is wonderful to walk round the grounds before the opera begins (with the...More

If you are an opera fan then this must be on your bucket list for that special occasion. A visit to a production (we saw Don Pasquale - fab!) during the Glyndebourne Festival is one of those 'must do' things but tickets can be hard...More
