NoteWorthy Founder Susie Worthy Passes Away

Founder of NoteWorthy Exquisite British Experiences Susie Worthy passed away on March 14 at The Cromwell Hospital after a sudden and unexpected illness. She was surrounded by family.

Worthy was the winner of numerous awards and accolades, including the esteemed Top Travel Specialist Award by Conde Nast Traveler for eight years running and the prestigious A-List Award by Travel & Leisure five years consecutively.

She pioneered the concept of private homes opening their doors to guests from overseas. She encouraged public buildings to work with her to create private experiences generating them much needed income. And she was one of the first to take guests for a private tour of the Tower of London, Highclere Castle, and The Royal Gardens At Highgrove.
