Althorp

Interesting
This 16C property, which was modified in the 18C, has attracted many visitors keen to see the family home of Diana, Princess of Wales, who died in a tragic accident in Paris in August 1997. Here Count Spencer opened a museum devoted to the memory of his sister, with an exhibition arranged according to different themes (Diana, the independent woman, her public work, her place in the monarchy etc) and including items such as her wedding dress, photos and previously unseen film clips.
