A group of us from our local church drove down from Basingstoke to meet up with a couple of our number who had relocated to sunny Selsea. It was great catching up with them taking coffee/ cakes in the comfortable coffee shop with its deep cushioned armchairs until it was time to take the tour. Yes it was very atmospheric... More

The NT should be ashamed for charging admittance to such a poor, meagre, display. We are NT members and travelled 15 miles to view...what a waste of time. If we had not been members we would have asked for a full refund. We struggled to find the right words to describe the poor display. It was so dark (supposedly atmospheric)... More

We walked around the park on a beautiful Autumn day. The setting is stunning and it was a joy to see the deer, including the stags. The tea room in the house was excellent - a perfect place to warm up after the walk.

Although the house and servants quarters were both quite restricted, it was worth the £5 admission. The grounds make for a delightful stroll. More plants and shrubs need identification. Useful parking for access to Petworth and the Christmas fair

We went to a talk on Mr Turner today, given by Andrew Loukes, a curator at PH, and a very knowledgable and articulate man. The talk was given in the cafe, and we all had lovely comfortable seats, set in a semi-circle to allow all the participants to have a good view of the screen, and while there was a... More

The house itself was closed but they were holding a 2 day Christmas market from today 22nd November so we thought we would take a look. You need to walk approx 700 metres to the various marques up by the house itself. There are over 70 stalls selling all manor of christmas fayre from the usual to the somewhat unusual... More

A fabulous house with a remarkable art collection. The grounds, lakes, walks and deer are a sight to behold and to be enjoyed! Had a light lunch in the wonderful Audit Room, but it would have been nice if the ham in my ham sandwich was more than 2 microns thick!
