  1. Are these the only dates available and not the rest of the year?

    • That is correct, for photography. It is a rare opportunity and does not seem to be available every year. 🙂 . For more info please check the link near the end of the post. 🙂

    • UPDATE: There now seems to be a policy.
      But I can’t quite make sense of the “Interiors” section. If you intend a visit, it would be best to email them and inquire. It seems that a permit is required for other than “Summer Lates”.

    • Quite so. Although not as bright as the continental types but does have a lot of workmanship. 🙂

  7. A wonderful opportunity. I have photos of the interior going back to when I was about 12. My mom was English and I spent quite a few summers in the UK.
