An historic house with many wonderful old masters. Great to see such a lovely collection in one place but the overall house is rather austere and the long walk to the house could put elderly, more infirm people off. Volunteers were extremely knowledgeable and happy...More

Petworth is a very old vintage town with very beautiful streets. It's an ideal place to be for a peaceful and city escape day outing.

We last visited Petworth over 18 years ago. It is now even better than we remembered. The art collection is truly memorable. Strongly recommended, and our guide was superb.

Large house only partly open to public, but extensive grounds ideal for family walkabout. Coffee shop staff dour but cafe staff very pleasant. Limited menu and more expensive than other National Trust places. A good day out but take a picnic!!

I visited Petworth three weeks ago. I shall not be returning. Were it not for my National Trust membership, I would not have gone at all. The house was badly presented, so many areas were out of bounds and some know-all insisted he knew everything...More

This is the most visited National Trust property, so maybe avoid holiday periods or weekends. Can enter from a doorway off the cobbled street, next to the Anglican Church- so park in the village and use this so you don’t pay for parking on site....More

Thank you NorthernWanderer0 for your view. We wish we could take the credit for the most visited National Trust property but we're not quite there yet! Reviews like yours will certainly help though. The Petworth town car park is still pay and display but the...More
