Great place to spend the entire day with friends an family. A lot of open spaces around the park region with a very charming pond in the middle. The house and the servant quarters itself is very grandiose and the painting and sculptures in the house is breathtaking. There is so much to read and every room of the house... More

Wow! I had no idea how enormous Petworth Park is! We didn't go in the house, except to have tea and cake after the walk, but the park is just lovely. You can walk for miles and miles and admire the view, the deer, the birds, the trees, the lakes, the house... Loved it

Went there most recently for the special Turner exhibition which was great but a little cool in the main house as there is no heating on in winter!

Fine if you are into paintings and sculpture, but as a more casual visitor we enjoyed the kitchens, the scale of the building, the way that it dominates the town and the vastness of the estate. The gardens, however, are bettered elsewhere, and if it wasn't for the naturalised daffodil display they would have been disappointing. The minibus service for... More

We have visited Petworth before and it was so beautiful in the Spring that we called in again while passing. The walk up through the grounds to the house was full of daffodils, hellebores and wood anemones. We went into the house for the first time and saw the wonderful paintings and sculptures. I particularly wanted to see Turners paintings... More

Visited here when the Turner exhibition was on. Surprised there were no concessions for National Trust members and that there was no talk given about the exhibition or the house. Staff/volunteers on duty did not impart much, if any, information. Also a lot of the paintings in the main house were poorly lit and even staff were using torches to... More

What a beautiful step back in time. We've been a few times now and enjoyed the Christmas house so much we joined the National Trust. The house is open in full splendour with an amazing collection of art including Turner. The statues are gorgeous some neo classical and all stunning. It's like going to Downton as you can see the...

I had not been able to get to the Turner exhibition but recently saw the film "Mr Turner". Having done so felt I had to return to the house to see the real thing and find some of the Turner paintings on display there. The house is beautiful with many wonderful paintings, sculptures, furniture and antiques set in splendid rooms.... More

Went to have a look at the JMW Turner paintings at Petworth House. They also had a special exhibition of props from the film on display. Very interesting to be in the same place that Turner stayed at during his lifetime.

On a recent visit to Petworth House it was to walk back in time. The kitchens and servants quarters are amazing. You can stop and have refreshments pop into the shop before you visit the main house. The main house is famous for its Turner paintings but look at the rooms and the other paintings, the main staircase is jaw... More
