  • Great place to visit and relax. The gardens are great and a wonder to see. A good day out for all the family.  more »
  • Absolutely loved out visit here last summer it's a little hidden gem . The house is lovely even if there aren't that many rooms but in the summer it is all about the grounds. A day can easily be spent...  more »
  • Wrest Park makes for a very good visit, the house, the grounds (especially the grounds), the shop & the cafe. Also, the staff were very helpful too. However, do check the house isn’t hosting a wedding...  more »

  • Wrest Park is a lovely place to visit, you can walk round the grounds and lakes, take dogs but on leads, the main house do tours inside. From April onwards weekends they have events like St George's Day, they hold weddings there not surprising it's perfect for that. The grounds was designed by Lancelot "Capability" Brown. It's well worth a visit you'll enjoy the peaceful scenery and wildlife that surrounds it.
  • Lovely state home to visit. Beautiful property spanning acres of greenery. Marvelous architecture on the house. Lovely and friendly staff. Has a very nice cafe, stateroom, Mansion House, gallery, Bowling green house, picturesque walkways. Golf kart to show you around. Free parking! Lovely even for the kids.
  • Lovely English Heritage site. Beautiful gardens. Refreshments reasonably priced. People brought picnics and ball games to play in the gardens. Paths suitable for scooters.
  • Fantastic day out for all the family. We thoroughly enjoyed the St George's day event but love this place throughout the year. The children especially enjoy exploring the woodland and the landscaping is inspirational.
  • Lovely English Heritage house and gardens. The house itself, having suffered a fire and been sold and converted for various different uses over the years, is largely empty nowadays with only one room remaining fully (period) furnished. However the Capability Brown gardens and grounds are as beautiful as in their heyday and well worth walking around. See if you can get to the top of the Archer Pavilion! Nice cafe too, for a tea/coffee and a bite to eat after.
