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!

We had only limited time to visit Petworth House and so offer simply an overall impression. The house is large with about two thirds open to the public. The servants quarters and the bedrooms were the most interesting for me. The many public rooms are crammed with paintings and sculptors, and this is where Petworth may score highly for art... More

This is truly a fine place to visit. With loads of history and the deer park is massive. I live locally, so visit on a regular basis with my wife, and at different times of the year,presents itself in different ways and themes.

We visited on a lovely November Saturday and spent over 4.5 hours in the House and grounds. The walk towards the house was charming as the trees were very colourful and were shown at their best with perfect light shining on them. The House is a bit different than other NT stately homes. It is full of art collections and... More

Fantastic afternoon out as usual. Friendly staff and volunteers. So welcoming and helpful. Lunch was lovely and very tasty. Sitting by the lake was wonderful and nice walk around it. Will keep returning every month as usual

Even at half term, plenty of space for all to enjoy the wonderful collection of Turner paintings. Likely to become a more popular venue after the release of the film about the artist. The volunteer guides were some of the best we have encountered in the many National Trust properties that we have visited and the extra small talks on... More

We needed somewhere nice to go for my wife's birthday, which needed to be dog friendly. So being NT members this was an obvious choice. With a dog entry to the house and pleasure grounds is not possible, as we expected, so a walk in the park would have to do. It turned out to be an amazing trip, we... More
