Went expecting to view a large portion of the house but alas on Thursday's and Friday's there is limited viewing. What we saw was good especially the kitchens, and it was good that there are seats for you to rest your weary legs. Due to constant rain we never looked around the gardens. The signage to the main house could... More

The house is great if you enjoy art as it is mainly full of art. There are extra red seats to sit and enjoy the works. Would have liked to see the rooms set up as they would have been. The making of the Turner film room with how it was made was very interesting. The outside space is wonderful... More

Unfortunately we visited Petworth house when there was limited rooms open to the public. This meant that only the kitchens, servants quarters, chapel and gallery were open. We did however manage to book on to a bedroom tour so were able to view other parts of the house, this is an extra £5 or free to NT members. The grounds... More

There are some fantastic grounds here by non other than Capability Brown. The roof is being replaced and for a fiver you can get a good view from it - weather permitting. To help those who tire easily they have red chairs so you can rest for a while. Two pounds gets you a audio visual guide. The house is... More

When we finally arrived at Petworth House after paying £4 to park and almost £40 in admission fees we were told that some parts of the house were closed for restoration. What an understatement! The only parts of the house we could enter were the old kitchens and servant areas and a large, poorly lit room full of Turner's works.... More

We visited here on a Thursday when only part of the house is open but it did not disappoint. We were shown round the kitchens by informative members of staff. The portraits by Turner were well worth the visit. Afterwards we walked round the lovely gardens where there were many families enjoying picnics

Unfortunately we didn't read the website properly and didn't realise you can't take dogs anywhere in the grounds except the park. So we walked around the park with our dog and three year old and then we tag teamed it going in to use the loo and getting sandwiches. It was too hot to leave the dog in the car... More

The building is a sight to behold. The grounds are vast and a delight to walk through and behold. Then you enter the galleries and some of the greatest artists of all time have their work right I n front of you.
