We visited Petworth House today - it was a beautiful sunny day and the grounds were stunning. At £14 each for two adults it is not a cheap visit and since we just wanted to see the house itself it was a little on the high side - especially as you are restricted to just the ground floor. in reality...

This house had great paintings and interesting aspects of past history. One of the ceilings had a painting which reminded me of Michael Angelo's painting in Rome. Just how someone could paint a beautiful picture on the ceiling is incredible! The park was fabulous. This place is well worth a visit. Lots to photograph!

This is a good and interesting National Trust property. Fascinating kitchens beautifully recreated, with interesting commentary. The real stunner was the artwork and sculptures, some amazing pictures, the only drawback was the lighting which was so poor it was hard or impossible to see some of the works. We had a light lunch in the restaurant which was average and... More

We went to Petworth to take the once in a generation opportunity to climb the scaffold and see all the work going on up on the roof. We were not disappointed. After a safety briefing we were taken up by our two knowledgeable guides, Stuart and Esold. It only takes a short while to climb up (the builders get to... More

The House is very interesting and having walked around for a while, we were all suddenly confronted with rooms full of Art! Beautiful pictures and exquisite sculptures. The Park is well worth a couple of hours walking.

Spent about 4 hours here today. Age of my party ranging from 9 - 60+. Could easily have stayed longer. National trust members. Lovely walk from car park to house was really part of the whole experience. Little nooks to explore. Great range of famous paintings within the house. Children able to search for hidden spaniel toy dogs in various... More

We arrived on a very wet and cold Sunday, we walked up the drive way amongst the vast gardens, there is a shuttle car but we had missed it, so decided to walk. The house is very stately and we went straight into the North Wing for a talk on the history of all the vast paintings in this faboulous... More

We took a picnic here and stopped at the park, parking area very busy. We stopped on the hill as do most people as it is quite a trek if you are carrying all picnic stuff. Watch were you sit and lay food as it is covered in deer poo, as it is a deer park. Nice park with nice... More

Went on a Thursday and not all the rooms were open. Had a butler tour of some of the galleries and the guide was very knowledgable and dressed in the part. I was surprised at how many well known artists work was on display. The kitchens and servants quarters are well worth a visit. There is a car to transport... More
