I had not heard of this house before, but a friend recommended the tour, which has to be prebooked. I also had not realised the link with the late Lord Snowdon. The tour started with a short but very informative film. We then visited all...More

I'm fairly sure that I carried my handbag round the house with me. I think they really mean things like rucksacks. The area is very secure as the public have to be admitted / access is controlled - they cannot just wander in. There were no other people in the house during our visit.
