• A chance to meet Highclere’s chef and butler, and find out what it’s like to have dinner at Highclere.
• Behind the scenes footage of Highclere’s collections including paintings, furniture and a desk that once belong to Napoleon Bonaparte all introduced by Lord and Lady Carnarvon themselves.

I know this app been out a while but I thought I would give it a whirl. It's not really VR. Not in the sense as what we are used to today with the oculus and all. To bad Meta has not done one with Highclere yet. I would pay good money for a interactive VR tour with perhaps some characters. The things to do would be endless! Tour gardens, have a luncheon with a character, go on a hunt, sooooo many ideas!

I do not recommend this app. There are technical problems with the video. I found nothing on this app that is not available on the Castle's website. This is basically an app that only offers basic website info.

App did not run correctly on my Lenovo tablet. Whenever it required interconnect connection it behaved as though I had no connection. Very disappointing!
