  • What an amazing place. Totally steeped in history and central to the development of France and England. The audio guide was great and took me round most of the site with lots of information.

  • Beautiful, magical place. Presented really well. Queueing minimal for tickets as went for about 2pm as open til 8pm. Be aware though, we went on a Wed and because we went later, the selection of food was limited as they stop serving at 4pm. All info in French and English. Loved it all, gardens and riverside setting stunning.
