Wrest Park

Behind the scenes tours
 
Join our behind the scenes artefacts tour and discover a treasure trove of unique and special objects spanning 2,000 years of English history. Tours take place on the first Monday of every month starting from June.

A gardener's world, a picnicker's paradise
 
From dazzling parterres and fragrant borders, to sweeping landscapes and woodland walks - Wrest Park is a real treat for the senses. Explore over 90 acres showcasing French, Dutch, Italian and English styles side by side. Keep an eye out for our collection of hidden gems, including the Bath house with its thatched roof and cobbled floor inlaid with a pattern of deer bones; the ornate marble fountain; a Chinese Temple and bridge; and over 40 statues - can you find them all? There's even more to explore with the opulent Countess' Sitting Room, conservatory and interactive exhibition on the ground floor of the mansion house, as well as the Dairy Sculpture Gallery and the baroque Archer Pavilion with its stunning interior.

The perfect pit stop
 
Families with energy to burn can grab an activity backpack and an audio trail designed for kids and head out to explore the grounds. If they're still feeling energetic head to the children's play area to let off some steam.

Tea room treats
 
Feeling peckish? Our café offers a selection of delicious, locally sourced refreshments. Find out more on our Food & Drink page. Take inspiration from history at the shop where you can pick up jams and chutneys, wines, beers, books, garden gifts and more.
