Enjoy a stroll through gardens and parkland set against the backdrop of a historical mansion at Wentworth Castle Gardens. Wander through the 24 hectares (60 acres) of formal gardens and encounter the various styles of garden design, characteristic of the periods that the garden has been in existence. Highlights include an early 18th-century Union Jack Garden and a Victorian Flower Garden. Amble through the Wentworth parkland and discover local wildlife. Look out for the herds of Red and Fallow deer, which are free to roam across much of the estate. Follow the Monument’s Trail to see Queen Anne’s Obelisk, the Duke of Argyle’s monument, and more. There is a regular program of guided walks in the parkland and gardens. Rest your legs in the cafe, which serves hot and cold food. Access to the interior of Wentworth Mansion is only available through a pre-booked tour.

  • Brilliant for young kids, my daughter loved it. They have an outside play area with sandpit and the egg hunt took in the wonderful gardens

  • Expensive entry but the gardens are fantastic and with nice weather could easily spend a whole day here.
