Despite an initial reluctance/rebellion from daughter #1 (aged 14) I think both our girls - the other is 12 - enjoyed the day.
A beautiful house and lovely grounds. Lots of interest inside the house - well worth chatting to the knowledgable room guides as there are lots of fascinating details.
The final room - recreating the inside of a maharajas palace was amazing.
It was chucking it down on the day we visited, so we didn’t enjoy the gardens as much as we might have, but it was worth a walk/minibus ride to the Swiss Cottage - essentially a life size dolls house for the 9 children of Victoria and Albert - plus the beach was also very nice. Lots of catering across the site and we had a very nice lunch in the old chapel.
Highly recommended for those with an interest in history.
