My wife and I were slightly disappointed with the Palace. Several of the rooms had no furniture in them- the whole palace seemed on the dark side and even the display of dresses worn by Diana did not come up to expectations- with only about 6 dresses on show and even these were not brilliant according to my wife.
To cap it all- we went to the cafe where I was charged £3.95 for one scone and tiny jar of jam ! Absolutely ridiculous.
We have visited many stately homes in the UK which are far better value for money with far more to see.
