Attingham Park, Shrewsbury

Immerse yourself in the aristocratic life of the 18th century with a visit to the country house and estate of Attingham Park. The first Baron Berwick in 1785 used his wealth from the East India Company to commission the primary mansion, which has been formally recognized for its historical importance. Inside you'll find large banquet halls and art collections. Outside are walled gardens and miles of trails perfect for spotting deer and other wildlife. You can enjoy a picnic on the grounds. There are open spaces where kids can play freely. Put Attingham Park into our Shrewsbury itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Shrewsbury.

    Lovely walks, all different lengths! All the walks I've been on have been pram friendly. The park is great too, my toddler loves it! And to top it all off, the cakes are delicious  more »

  • Great place with nice food and wonderful scenery. House is spectacular too. However, it's becoming a victim of its own success and feels very busy at weekends and during holidays. Disappointed to see bookshop massively scaled down too
  • Beautiful property. Very large grounds with a great play field for kids (we took my girlfriend's two year old niece and spent most of the afternoon here!) Great day out.
  • Beautiful Grounds. We took our 3 year old grandson for the day. The grounds are gorgeous and it is all easy walking which is pushchair friendly. The children's play area is fabulous.
  • Excellent National Trust property very good ranges of walks. The house is very beautiful with very knowledgeable guides check out the dinning room. Children's​ play area also very good and popular
  • Lovely house and grounds. Nice little park for the children. Normally an activity going on in the grounds for the children. They have a running course around the deer park. And speaking of deer park, getting up and personal to the deer is really nice. We love it, the dog loves it too.
