Visit to UK Historic Estate/ Homes?

Jump to last reply

My very active 80 year old Mother and I will be visiting London in July for the Olympics. We will have a car and two free days (not consecutive) for travel out of the city. On our Saturday we would like to visit one of the historic country homes/ castles/ estates. We are from NY and have visited several American North Eastern estates, (Vanderbilts’, Roosevelts’, etc..) and find architecture, interior design, fine art, and gardens very enjoyable. After much research I have narrowed our choices to Burghley House, Waddesdon Manor, or Blenheim. I was hoping someone would have first hand experience at these estates to suggest the best choice.
We are not traveling with small children so we would rather not visit a house/ estate that is geared more for the enjoyment of children/ families. A lovely afternoon to enjoy the country, view some art, and have a nice meal is what we would like.
