We were able to get in as HHA members otherwise, as with most big houses/estates, it would've been an expensive day out! The tour inside the house was very interesting for us as was the vintage/sports car exhibition. Lovely grounds and the children's play area looked very impressive (no kids with us, all grown up :-( ). Didn't eat in... More

I had anticipated an interesting and informative house. However the amazing wealth of art and sculpture was totally unexpected. Famous artists featured with works by Bruegel the Younger, Rubens, Reynolds and Van Dyke to name but a few. Stunning collection of early sculpture including 1st century BC. The house is richly furnished and the staff both polite and informative. There... More

My grandchildren love Wilton House because they love climbing about in the Adventure playground and the long steep slides! The café and loos are nearby and lots of space for picnics. The gardens are extensive and the Whispering Chair very popular as is the river where on a hot day you can cool your feet! For older visitors Wilton House... More

Nice grounds but a lot of it is not open to the public even the flower garden at the back of the house if off limits so not much to walk round.

Particularly good for children - we had season tickets to the grounds for years. Lovely walks along the river and in the gardens. Good parking. Tranquil, lovely countryside. Very good shop and large, good value café. The house is just beautiful, with amazing paintings and the fabulous double cube room.

Visited for classic car show. Lovely gardens and house, although not all rooms open this weekend as the show was on. Staff very friendly and knowledge.

What a spectacular gathering of wonderful Classic and SUPERCARS in one place at one time. Very well organised, splendid surrounds, cavalcade of cars supported by the... More

... rather than visit the parks, we decided to see this place and it did not disappoint us. beautiful, relaxing place to spend at least 2 hours of your time. there is a playground for kids but if you need to soak the calmness of nature then you have ample space to do that.

Wilton House, the grounds and the old master picture collection are 5 star. In addition there was a fascinating collection of photographs by Cecil Beaton, which were well displayed. In all, well worth the visit. Unfortunately the house guide detracted from the experience as his talk was full of flowery adjectives and prone to exaggeration. Pity.
