House and Gardens/Park beautiful. I'm no historian but it's great to see paintings, pictures and artefacts from the past so beautifully presented and made available to the public. Downside? Parking attendant tried to force us to park in a space with about 4 inches on either side. We couldn't have even got out of the car (we're thoroughly mobile) if... More

Petworth House is an enormous 18th century building, stark and inpressive, with a huge collection of paintings, most of which are on the dark and ill-lit side. But there are some treasures, like the Turners in the pannelling in the dining room. (Some scenes in the film Mr. Turner were shot here.) Don't forget to look for 8 small paintings... More

A well visited place by us. Great for long walks in lovely parklands with the deer grazing nearby. The house is very interesting and the restaurant / shop as always is very good. Good portion size in the restaurant too!

Excellent house and grounds. Highly recommended. You have one of the most amazing grounds to wander, then across the road into the quiet and peaceful town for tea and coffee in amazing settings

First, you have to pay £4 just to park your car. Then, another £15 per person to get in and finally to visit only part of the castle another £5pp. Nearly £4 for a scone and a cup of tea! That's the bad part. The good part is the gallery, of course, and the Turner paintings. Fortunately those are lit... More

Visited recently with our girls and nanny and grandad and everyone absolutely loved it! The house is gorgeous and packed full of interesting artwork and history. In the park the girls were able to run and walk amongst the deer and both said they loved it and were amazed at how close they could get to them. Definitely worth a... More

This is a great National trust property, full of information on the history of the country and the politics of the glory days of government. The house is lovely filled with great art works of Turner and beautiful sculptures . The grounds are huge and rolling and beautifully set .
