How many palaces, houses and castles is too many?

Jump to last reply

In doing my research of stately homes, palaces and castles, I have such a long list that one would need a few months to see them all.

One of the ones often mentioned is Waddesdon Manor in Buckinhamshire. We plan on seeing a number of other stately homes though in the Southeast and would like to spend some time in London as well.

So I was wondering, is Waddesdon Manor one of those "must sees" or since we will be seeing plenty of other wonderful stately homes too, should we focus more of our energy on the museums in London and save Waddesdon Manor for another time? I was wondering if after a while the more stately homes we would see, the more they would all start to look the same and begin to merge together.

Opinions appreciated.
