Just went here for a tour this week and it was gorgeous! I would actually recommend not watching the film before you go on the tour because a lot of the information is repeated, but it was still really cool.

Take your time and explore to grounds too - they’re absolutely stunning!

The annual craft's fair took place last weekend, and initially I had planned to spend an hour at Lyndhurst but was there for five hours. I had not planned to visit the Lyndhurst mansion, and it was truly the highlight of my day. Bob was an incredible guide who had all of us participating and laughing while having the most-interesting experience. I would recommend everyone to take Bob's tour. I plan on returning during the holidays. The Lyndhurst grounds are very scenic. What a gem this place and Bob, the guide are! Celeste Hoppey-Broder

We did not go inside, we just walked the grounds. Such a beautiful place to walk around and enjoy the scenery.
