Erddig June Jubilee 2012, a set on Flickr.
Yesterday we went on a trip to Erddig which is a beautiful 18th century house in Wales. As it was jubilee weekend they had bands playing and processions, and it was packed! It definitely deserves a re-visit when it's a bit quieter with a picnic. The gardens were lovely and really well looked after. The house itself is very large and grand. The rooms inside are beautiful but it is a frustrating place to visit. It's the most cordoned off National Trust house I've ever been in. Most rooms you can only stick your head in from outside the room or stand still in the corner, and they are so anxious to protect the interior you can barely see the light is kept so low. What you could see though is beautiful and well worth a visit.
