This destination seems to be particularly popular with young families but is equally good for all age groups . There is plenty of space in the courtyard cafe to cater for buggies and prams, and there are a large number of high chairs available. It is at this house that the National Trust have decided to share with visitors how... More

We arrived early in the afternoon and were welcomed at the ticket office. As NT members for many years, we always look for properties to visit when we are away from home. We really enjoyed our tour of the house. The guides were very informative and the printed sheets in each room gave sufficient information to take in but not... More

We visited on a cold foggy day, so didn't see much of the gardens. It is a National Trust property, so we joined one of the guided tours. The volunteer guide Andy was charming and extremely informative. The other guides around were also keen to impart their amazing knowledge. There is a lot of restoration work going on, and it... More

We generally enjoy a weekly walk around Attingham Park with the dogs but as we hadn't been inside the house recently, we paid it a visit last weekend. We were very impressed by all the restoration work that is going on and also by the excellent new displays in the house - the coronation video and costumes were particularly interesting.... More

Attingham Park is in a picturesque part of Shropshire and offers walkers/hikers/ramblers/strollers some lovely walks which offer seasonal attractions in flaura anf fauna. I'm no expert, but the deer were a particular attraction (it was the rutting season!) The house was undergoing some revovation work, but in common with all NT properties, historical interest is to be found in bucket... More

We visited on a very rainy day so decided to do a house tour, It was well worth doing. The guide who showed us round was very informative andshe gave us loads of information that we wouldnt have got from going round on our own. There is a large amount of restoration being done to the roof, however rather than... More

I have visited so often over the years that I should have squatters rights. I love this beautiful house and would happily swan around it in period costume all day if I could. The National Trust is doing an excellent job and the house and grounds are beautifully restored and maintained. You can pay to visit just the grounds if... More

Arrived at 9.45am outside the school holidays (last week of September) and the car parks were already filling up. Booked on a House tour at 10.30am as we went in. This was really informative and with just the right amount of humour especially regarding the chandelier cleaning and the chairs. Informed that tours of the John Nash Picture Gallery roof... More

Had a really enjoyable day here. When we arrived we decided to go on a guided tour of the house which was well worth doing and really fascinating. Whilst we were waiting for the tour to start we were offered the chance to go on a further tour up into the picture gallery roof to see the renovation work being... More
