Well worth booking ahead for this tour. You are taken about in a NT minivan all the guides are very interesting and helpful. You can smugly walk through the crowds who are being kept on the street.

You can view the outside of the homes from the street but won't be able to enter the property unless you have booked a tour with the National Trust.
