Overall had a really enjoyable visit. Was disappointed that we couldn’t visit the room where Churchill was born. Make sure you keep your tickets handy as they check them frequently , even in the grounds. Lots of measures were taken to keep people safe. Have to wear masks at all times whilst in the building and that includes staff. Plenty of hand gel areas. No need to wear masks outside and the grounds are so vast , that you could always keep your distance. It is well worth a visit.
Had trouble at the admission cabin, the machine was playing up, so only one receipt. Having had our admission tickets checked, the charming young man advised us that the tickets could be converted to an annual pass. He then directed us to a booth on the other side of the square. Here we met a jobsworth, who insisted that the ticket could not be converted and furthermore there was nothing to say that we had paid for the ticket.
Very enjoyable visit. Learnt a lot going round the palace, but would like to have been allowed to see more. Disappointed in cafe arrangement. Social spacing went to pot ! Also need more tables. Landscaping fantastic. Will return just to walk the grounds.
Very enjoyable tour round palace, well organised, especially in the present climate. Staff very welcoming and knowledgable. Thought the virtual reality look into the past was really good. Also enjoyed walking round the lake.
Unfortunately the formal gardens were not open as Tour Privee was on. There was no mention of this on the web site and it was disappointing not to see the beautiful gardens that are an important feature of the palace .
