We are National Trust members and so thought as were were staying in Shrewsbury we would visit Attingham Park. Unfortunately, the main house wasn't open and only guided tours/talks were available. We went on the "how the family made & lost their money" To be honest the guide made it very enjoyable and enlightening. If we come back to Shrewsbury... More

Love Attingham Park, such a nice walk. Short and Long walks to do, and places to stop along the way. The views are stunning, especially on a crisp morning. Great for all ages. I go time and time again being a Member of NT it's a great low cost day out with the family!

This park has a lot of gorgeous wildlife and nature, which is lovely to photograph. It's a great place to tire out your dogs, or your kids, either one! However, the cafe is a bit bland, but that's not really what you go there for, is it?

Dreat grounds with drifts of snowdrops throughout swathes of the woodland. Even though the house is not fully open at this time of the year (Feb) NT lay on talks in a restricted area of a few rooms which gave us a taste of the history. Really needs to be visited in better weather to appreciate the grounds

Living locally & being NT members, we decided to wander around Attingham Park on Saturday evening for their "Candlight Snowdrop Walk", open 5.30 to 8.30pm. Upon arrival the car park was very busy and there was a slight queue, but NT staff/volunteers were coming along the line scanning Membership tickets to help speed up the entry process. Entry was £2.00... More

We have just returned from the snowdrop walk around the grounds. A beautiful display which was very popular. The cat parks were full. We were fascinated by the wild life that was roaming and flying around the estate, we saw deer, squirrels, mice, swans, robins, and my favourite a pair of nuthatch. Attingham Park is an excellent advertisement for Shrewsbury.

NT catering does seem to have gone downhill. Scruffy, chairs and tables strewn all over the place, cups down right dirty. People were sorting through them to find ones that didn't have old tea stains on them. Poor selection of cakes and my scone was cold, possible just defrosted, and stale. That said the snowdrops make the trip worthwhile quiet... More

Attingham Park has so much to commend it; I've been walking and eating there for decades. Just to the East of Shrewsbury, there are wonderful safe grounds to walk in; dogs are welcome in most parts on a lead and, in areas away from the deer, it's OK to let the dog run free. Families make full use of the... More

Attingham park is a great place if you want a lovely stroll or walk the dog even somewhere for the children to let off steam. There are various walks which include the lovely few of the deers picnic areas a park for the children, then you have the grand house which is beautiful open for tours not suitable for prams/pushchairs...

We have enjoyed Attingham Park for many year's but it has deteriorated alot over last couple of years. The staff are often poorly educated - some arent even aware of major national trust promotions and are overtly profit driven especially in the shop. There has also been major changes in the dog policy which means I am no longer able... More
