A splendid National Trust Property which will be even more spectacular when current alterations are complete. Staff were in period costume which added to the ambience and they were very knowledgeable and helpful too. Lunch in the Mansion Tea Room was very good. The usual high standard of National Trust dining. Car parking excellent.

Attingham Park is a wonderful house. Fantastic views, lots of hidden gems inside. The staff are very helpful. Beautiful grounds to walk and have a picnic. One not to be missed.

Attingham Park is a wonderful tribute to the work of the National House. The large stately home and its many outbuildings built in the 1700's is in the final stages of its restoration, which has been sympathetically undertaken to a high standard. The grounds are beautifully laid out and there are a variety of well signposted walks, ranging from "The... More

A gloriously sunny day added to the enjoyment of this wonderful Palladian mansion house set in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. The NT are in the middle of a restoration project there but this in no way detracted from the visit. I would recommend visitors to access a guided tour if they can. The lady who was my guide was very... More

This National Trust location would be a great set for a period drama - its imposing frontage is very impressive and the house offers a host of treasures and surprises. The gardens a expansive and a beautiful place to walk, or picnic. Attingham has a variety of events throughout the year, so can be different every time you go. Worth... More

A few days ago I went Attingham Park, great choice, and amazing weather! The house is wonderful, arrived early, so took the opportunity to have a tour before exploring the house on my own. Our guide, dressed in period costume was extremely knowledgeable, with light humour included! Restoration going on at the moment, went on the roof tour, really interesting,... More

Visited here for our wedding anniversary "day out". Such a lovely place. At first we were a bit concerned by the number of cars, but can honestly say you wonder where all the people are once inside. We're both NT members so had looked for somewhere new to visit that would provide us with special memories of our anniversary. We... More
