There is a fair walk down to the house but fortunately there is a land train which we took and were glad of. The gentleman driving it was very knowldegeable and we learned how Lord Berwick left his property to the NT as he didn't have any heirs. We learned that Lady Berwick was knocked down and killed just outside... More

Around the side of the main house is Home Farm, a working dairy farm with other animals, pleasant lands and an interesting history. Very reasonable entry, cafe and lamb feeding. It's not a 'farm park' but does have playground and plastic tractors!

I visited this fab National Trust house over Easter with my children. There is a fab play area for the kids. They also had an Easter egg hunt on for a small fee of £2.50. It kept the kids busy for a couple of hours,allowing me quality time to explore the house. I was not disappointed. It is truly wonderful.... More

Attingham Park has many positives, great walks around the grounds, a superb childrens play field (huge), deer (lots), various places to eat/drink, all the "usual" features of a NT property. In the last 6 months there have been a number of improvements to the car park, pathways etc. A really nice place to go for a stroll!

This is a very good tourist attraction with lots to see and do. The guides in the house are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history of Attingham which is very interesting. There is an extremely good café and lovely gardens to walk round and the gardeners are happy to talk explaining what they are doing and what is being... More

Attingham Park is at its best in the spring. The snowdrop walk is fantastic well worth a visit. A visit anytime is also well worth it

The sunshine really does make all the difference but Attingham is always lovely - even when not bathed in glorious spring sunshine as it was today. It's some time since I have fully explored the estate and the walled gardens were new, surprising and sublime. We had two coffee breaks, one of which featured the standard National Trust cream tea...

National trust property. House to visit. Extensive grounds to walk around, deer park and childrens play park, set in a field with pic-nic tables, toilets and a snack bar. Also the estate includes a gift shop and plant sales. Huge car park. There is also Home Farm, attached to the estate but you pay separately for that. It has a... More

Attingham Park is much more than a stately home. The grounds in which it is set are beautiful. There are many things to see and do for old and young alike. The gardens are educational, the walks have plenty to see- you may be lucky and see the deer and then there is a cafe for a well earned cuppa!... More
