Secret treasures abound at Petworth House and Park, which invites you and your little ones to search for hidden spaniels and tucked-away children’s treasure chests. The 17th-century house is set in a 283 hectare (700 acre) deer park also contains numerous art pieces by Turner, Van Dyck, and Blake. If your interests are more domestic, check out the servants’ quarters, scullery, and other workrooms. You can book a private tour to get a firsthand look at the home’s handwritten copy of Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. Check out the estate’s mobile app before visiting for update information on visiting.

  • A very grand house stuffed with paintings by well-known classical artists, on a par with the National Gallery. There are also sculptures and curios, and a host of items to wonder at and enjoy. The hou...  read more »

  • Massive country house with fantastic collection of art - including many by JMW Turner. Turner spent much time at the house, and the house features in the recent film. The pleasure grounds (gardens) are pleasant to walk around but the open parkland views to the lake make this house stand out from the landscape. Unlike many NT houses this one is right in the town of Petworth so combine your visit here with a walk around the pretty town.
  • Extensive grounds, large house but only a small part of it open. Best parts of visit were the kitchens and servants quarters. Lots of artwork made main house more like visiting an art gallery.
  • Brilliant house and grounds! Especially brilliant as my great grandad was head butler there! Superb!
  • This wonderful place has it all. Beautiful gardens, views, stunning art collection... A day out to remember. Easy to get to - A272/A283
  • A picturesque and historic building in the heart of West Sussex, with lovely staff a brilliant cafè and what most consider to be the best art collection in the national trust, well worth a visit if your local. I also love the guided tours on a Thursday and Friday, sadly most of the main house is closed but your able to see a select view of the house with a brilliant room guide. The coffee shop has a nice and cosy atmosphere for a nice relaxing coffee and the cafe has a nice selection of food for those wanting something warm
