Really interesting tour with a knowledgeable guide. I hope the house is rescued as it is a gem, and should be a great asset to the area.

Took the Fitzwilliam tour yesterday and what a fantastic experience. Having walked past the house several times we, like many others, were intrigued to see what lay beyond the exterior and were not disappointed. Robert was an excellent guide - he gave us lots of historical information about the house and it's past owners in a witty and entertaining manner.... More

The last owner has died and after a long struggle for survival the largest private house in England, possibly in Europe claims the guide, is up for sale again. Let’s hope the new owner has deep pockets for it will need work. Most of the contents were scooped up by an heir and removed to an estate in Kent, but... More

Halloween Spooktacular & Fireworks Halloween Spooktacular & Fireworks Display. I am appalled by what I have experienced tonight. Blatantly ripping the public off. £40.00 spent, to basically get through the gates of Wentworth Woodhouse. Once inside, captive audience, food and drink extortionate. Absolutely everything inside required putting your hand in your pocket, in order to entertain a 4yr old until... More

This is a brilliant place to look back in time. It has all the ingredients to be a downtown abbey. But a smaller version. You can see where the servants lived, and the grounds are phenomenal. We often walk through the grounds and down to Greasbrough Lakes. Once we have walked back through the estate we either walk through the... More

Having read the book "Black Diamonds" I wanted to visit the location to try and bring the book to life. I wasn't disappointed. I booked myself on the Fitzwilliam Tour via the website. It was £25 well spent. The tour was lead by "Reg" an enthusiastic guide who made up for what he didn't know by the mountain of information... More
