A glimpse into the world of stately homes and castles
In this 20-episode, factual British series, antiques expert Tim Wonnacott and expert chef Rosemary Shrager travel in the footsteps of Queen Victoria, visiting the grand houses, castles and stately homes that she visited throughout her life. Using Victoria's own diaries and other firsthand accounts of her visits, they reveal the extraordinary food, décor and garden preparations that were undertaken, exactly what happened during the visits and explore the legacy of each royal stay - upstairs and downstairs.

The choice of the two hosts Rosemary Shrager and Tim Wonnacott was most unfortunate. They really grind on you after a few episodes with their repetitive language, gesticulations, overblown enthusiasm and the over enunciation of words like "stunning", "fabulous" etc. To top it off they pull all kinds of faces while doing this. The repeated references to the owners and the guests of the houses as "toffs", "aristos" etc. is very annoying. For me the worst part are their constant lame attempts at humor and / or being clever.Read more ›

I rate this series an A+++ !!
