We expected to spend an hour or so here en route to Ironbridge Gorge but stayed for four hours. Whilst it was disappointing not to see the bedrooms set out, the tour explaining the extensive renovation work was riveting and gave a really good insight into the time and cost of restoring properties that have fallen on hard times.

Spent an afternoon here and had a great time! Digs loved it for the extensive and well signposted walks, son loved it for the amazing playground - (quite a hike - 500m - from the house but well worth it!), fascinating house and a really interesting "behind the scenes" look at the repairs to the roof and a fascinating exhibition...

Think I'd head elsewhere, if it were only to view the house and I were paying a one off ticket price, as other properties, in my personal opinion are nicer. In saying that it is still very nice. The deer park is wonderful, so long as deer are visible, which ordinarily they usually are. The countryside is fine, not outstanding... More

This beautiful Palladian style house are part of an amazing story of fortunes made and lost. We were here 10 years go and the difference is incredible. The ceilings are so beautiful and there are lots of different places to eat, should you so wish. I can't wait to see what will be restored next

We thought the write-up in the National Trust book and on-line were a little lack lustre so weren't expecting a great deal from our visit, however we were pleasantly surprised. The guides in the rooms were exceedingly helpful, friendly and excited to share their knowledge; the house is rather beautiful, particularly the ceilings and there was lots to do in... More

Attingham Park is a lovely place to visit whilst in Shropshire. It is only just down the road from where I live so I took my parents there when they visited me. The gorunds are lovely and you can spend all day walking around the deer park. They also have a wonderful vegetable garden and walled garden that has been... More

Loved my walk around the parks and house, I've never been into the house before and it was great to hear all about the history. It's not completely finished which is a little disappointing but the garden walks and childrens area make up for it.
