This is a delightful property with helpful and friendly staff. However, the bedrooms don't open until much later than the downstairs. There are many good pieces of art to see and a lovely chapel. It was just a shame that we weren't able to see the upstairs.

This was our 4th visit so we rate this property highly. We started with a walk around the grounds looking at the temples & the lake. It would be nice if the trees were labelled as we didn't know them all. Lovely to see the deer. It is very hard to take in all the treasures in 1 visit which... More

This stately home is still a private residence but there is still plenty to see including an unmatchable collection of paintings by Turner. Most of the servants area is open, the kitchens are amazingly well preserved and the guides were very helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Petworth House and Park. I'm glad you enjoyed exploring our fantastic collection.

Friendly and helpful greeting at reception then another long walk to the house. lots to see but I am sure all would agree that this is not our finest stately home ! Everywhere there is fine art work and also some... More

Lovely house, we were the first in on house opening & had a lovely quick tour of some of the art & sculptures in the main hall, very interesting & informative, you can spend as much time in the house as you like or go round more than once, only a small portion of the house is on show but... More

I was completely unprepared for this. More of a very fine art gallery in a Country house setting. I was very impressed by the collection which included a Turner depicting Tabley Park. Of special interest as I used to work at Tabley. Other fine examples of portraits, landscapes, battle scenes, sculptures and fine furniture. I need to go back again... More

We took my elderly mother and cousin to Petworth House for the day. We also had our 2 dogs so enjoyed a walk around the park. We were able to take turns sitting with the dogs so we all had time to explore the house with it's magnificent art collection. It was fab!

We luckily had a family ticket giving us free entry to the house & grounds so used this over the Easter period when the National Trust were running children's activities as well. We had a lovely walk through the bluebell woods & thought the length of the walk & little activities were very well organised. We were also pleasantly surprised... More
