Just a short drive out from Salisbury, but this 'stately home' is worth the trip on its own. From a somewhat unimpressive, iron-gated entrance the fountained forefront leads up to the most amazing residence. Still home to the Earls of Pembroke, the whole place is an elegant reminder of a time when Wilton was the main centre for the whole... More

A beautiful estate with lush gardens and river walk and awesome play area for kids! The House is well kept, there is also a motor museum - displaying the collection of cars by Lord Pembroke.

Wilton House is one of the great houses of Britain. Do not miss the film which records the history of the house most entertainingly. The motor museum is also of interest to petrol heads. However, it is the house and the paintings which take your breath away. Ornate rooms house superb paintings about which the attendants are so knowledgeable. Ceilings... More

We weren't sure what to expect going here and we are so glad we went. The grounds were amazing - gourgeous rose gardens, Japanese garden, stoll along the river, and the Palladian Bridge is even more beautiful in person than it is in photos. Incredible playground for kids that you could spend the whole day at with little ones and... More

Visited Wilton House as part of the free entry Heritage Visit. Normally entry to the House and Gardens is around £14, please check the website for costs and opening hours. Gardens are very beautiful and well tended and on a nice day I would recommend bringing a picnic and enjoy the grounds. Attractions include the House, a small collection of... More

We visited on a warm sunny day and enjoyed a stroll through the gardens. At lunchtime the lengthy queue to enter the house had disappeared so we went inside. We were not so impressed by the stone statues & busts many of which had damage. The decoration of the main rooms and the quality of the oil paintings was remarkable.... More

First of all, to give you a background, enjoy the short video featuring Anna Massey. The house has magnificent gardens which open in season at 11h 00 and then the house itself opens half an hour later.Between thge two you may like to enjoy the superb collection of Classic motor cars or the Photography exhibition by Cecil Beaton. The rooms... More

Wilton House is an excellent place to visit with children. We visited the house as well, which was very nice and interesting, even though not huge as only some parts of the house are open to the public, since the family still lives there. Very well taken care of. The outside is beautiful. One can spend hours walking around the... More
