Lady Carnarvon’s love of history is richly rewarded at Highclere Castle with its mine of family records going back some 300 years. She has delved into the archives to create a book that invites you inside the Castle, past and present. This book tells the story of four real life weekends – from 1866 to 1936 – when the great and the good gathered at Highclere to change the world in some large or small part. It then reflects on how the current Countess entertains at Highclere today. Each weekend showcases the life of the house, both upstairs with the rich and famous and below stairs with the staff and employees.
