Glad we visited. Whilst impressive the house had a mausoleum like quality in that it lacked warmth, light and above all life and therefore felt sad and sterile. Part of this is because of the way it is presented; we also felt there had been...More

As with many National trust houses, efforts have been made to attract more people to visit and to take advantage of the gardens and grounds. The house is worth a visit. Unfortunately, there is very little on Curzon and what there is is is incoherently...More
