The gardens and restaurant are fab. The house great if you like visiting houses, once was enough for me, but they do now have different exhibitions. It's expensive to get a season ticket given its closed more than it's open...

One of the best places for children to have a relaxing and enjoyable day. The slides and Trampolines are very popular with kids. For adults, the walk along the river and around the ground is fantastic. You can also do a tour of the house, but with extra cost. If you buy a yearly membership it works cheaply. Once a... More

It's a lovely place to visit and the play area is good for the kids. A bit pricey but if you get a season pass it works out cheaper.

What a wonderful and peaceful park!!! Although we visited on a busy Back Holiday, we managed to 'escape' from the crowds, walking into the woods and along the little stream: what a lovely walk!! highly recommended!!! Do not recommend spending money visiting the house: you won't see much and the combined ticket house+grounds is quite expensive: £ 14.50 per adult...it... More

Had a last ditch day out before the end of the summer holidays here today. The gardens are stunning and the grounds very well kept. Easy plod around in nice weather followed by the kids enjoying the fantastic play area. Lots for the kids to do in the adventure play and the river for paddling. All the staff were pleasant... More

For those with a keen interest in English architectural history and art Wilton House is a place that must be visited and there are some beautiful rooms and interiors and the grounds equally impressive. Not to mention the helpful and well informed volunteers. However, you do get the strong feeling that there is so much more that you are not... More

We visited this lovely house on Wednesday ,had a very good day and thoroughly enjoyed it all. But The cafe was certainly an eye opener , compared to the standards elsewhere on site at 11-30 in the morning it was dirty with torn tablecloths and generally looked like a 3rd rate canteen. The young staff were lovely. But come on... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Wilton House today. We were dismayed at the exceedingly long queue but found that the majority were buying familly tickets for the grounds only which are incidentally very good value. The house itself, created by among others Inigo Jones & james Wyatt, is splendid and contains many grand masters largely by Van Dyck but... More
