I've wanted to see inside this place for years. It did not disappoint! We did the Off Limits tour which was fascinating. So much history! Lovely volunteers too. Very special visit.
This is an amazing building, full of elegant touches and interesting nooks and crannies. Parts of it are so beautiful they take your breath away. Everyone there was incredibly helpful and friendly and is rightly proud of the building, its history and its current use. Lots of events go on here but if you get the opportunity to swim (the pool is only filled on rare occasions) then don't pass up the chance. It's a very special place.
