Spread the love


This summer, from July to August, tourists will be able to visit the Althorp Manor – the house where Princess Diana grew up.

Excursions will be held in the framework of the special exhibition "Animals Althorp." The house contains collections of furniture, art and ceramics. They are considered among the best private collections in Europe.

“Animals are as much a part of the history of the Spencer family as the house itself. The Spencers arrived with their flocks of sheep in this pasture-rich land in 1486 and built their home there in 1508. Since then, green pastures and oak forests have become the backdrop for their life and home for many animals, ”the exhibition description says.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to walk around the estate where the late princess grew up, and see the bedrooms, living rooms, library and Wootton Hall (the place where Diana learned to tap dance).

In the main halls of the house exhibits, original portraits and works of art are exhibited. Among the paintings you can see a portrait of Princess Diana and her favorite cat Marmalade.

The 90-room manor is owned by Diana's brother Charles Spencer. He lives there with his wife.

The grave of the late princess is located on a secluded island on the estate, where a memorial is erected in her honor.
