Althorp House & River Avon Cruise

Althorp House & River Avon Cruise

There is so much to enjoy at Althorp. A relaxing walk down a tree lined avenue to the house, enjoy the remodelled gardens and reflect in the peaceful surroundings of the poignant Round Oval. With 2017 marking the 20th anniversary since we tragically lost Lady Diana Spencer - this will certainly be a special time to visit this famous family home.
