The park and pleasure grounds are vast and one could spend hours exploring the huge area incorporating a large lake and woodlands. The house itself is amazing and we took one of the winter house tours which take place every hour. on our tour we visited the chapel and three vast rooms containing carvings, statues and paintings which must be...

Reading about it was better than the actual visit. The autumn leaves were colourful, the staff quarters were interesting.

There are 2 parkings one for the park for those who love long walks & great for dogs too, this is... More

Looking forward to taking the new pup.The wildlife and rolling hills are great for getting dogs used to different environments. There are ponds and streams to access or avoid. N.B.The main house is open to all bar dogs

Nestling in the South Downs is the National Trust's Petworth House. It was a sunny day which always helps but was a truly gorgeous location for a picnic. Capability Brown takes care of the outside views and walks and Turner and others take care of much of the artwork hanging inside which I was unaware of previously. Many artists' works... More

I visited in October and the leaves were changing. Beautiful park. The home is beautiful and filled with artwork and most of the original furniture. Worth a visit if you are in Petworth

Wonderful countryside setting. The house was interesting and filled with some magnificent artwork. We were lucky to catch the last day of an exhibition. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. The gift shop was well stocked and I managed to purchase a couple of children's Christmas books at bargain prices. The assistant in the gift shop was very nice and... More

Sadly, the weather wasn't very nice the day we visited, if it had been we would have taken advantage of the grounds and had a lovely long walk. The estate is enormous. Spent time in the house, wandering amongst the art works & sculptures. House still lived in, so not fully opened up, but nonetheless was still really interesting. The... More
