Princess Diana Exhibitions



The main visitor attraction for those wanting to find out more about the life and work of Diana, Princess of Wales is at the Spencer family home, Althorp in Northamptonshire.
Each year during the summer, there is an exhibition at Althorp depicting the life and work of the Princess. There are audiovisual presentations and exhibits including the Princess' wedding dress, childhood letters, school reports, and details of the Princess' work for charities.
The exhibition also includes information about the work of The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. Profits from the exhibition are donated to the Fund to continue the humanitarian work of the Princess.
