Petworth

A good mix of garden and house with the obligatory shop and café. Looked good in spring with loads of daffodils. Even the rose garden looked good.

Nice big park with lots of deer. The house is more like a museum, consisting of Roman marble busts and statues and old masters such as Van Dyke and Turner

My husband and I both enjoy visiting stately homes, art galleries and museums and we arrived at Petworth House with high hopes of another interesting day out. One enters the house by a side door - the architecture on this side was decidedly uninspiring - it vaguely reminded me of a workhouse ( still, I thought, perhaps it will be... More

Petworth House was somewhere I have not visited for 30 years. The National Trust Staff were to a person friendly, helpful and very committed to you enjoying the day. Great picture collection and nice house but need to be aware of the limited visiting times for some parts of the House. Doing the tours ( expensive if you are not... More

We visited Petworth House on a glorious spring day and were so glad we did. The walk up to the house through the beautiful grounds is great and then when the house appears it is amazing. The house is surrounded by parkland and amazing views on all sides. The main house is full of paintings,sculptures and lovely furniture. You can... More

Having just glanced at some earlier reviews, our thoughts are exactly as put by Malcasville (25th March) !! I'd only add that, as usual nowadays, the volunteers were informative and enthusiastic. And avoid the franchised coffee and snack van in the garden - it was expensive and the coffee appalling. It would be interesting to see one or two rooms... More
