Went there with some friends. Interesting place, very relaxed, even in the winter was worth checking out. An older house and lovely grounds, something for everyone. Lots of places for the kids to play, plenty of good photo ops also.

Excellent place to take a walk with the dogs. Full of history and beautiful gardens. Brilliant place for kids to let off steam in the play area while the parents have a well deserved drink.

We live around 45 minutes drive away and I had just about heard of Wrest Park, but it seems to be a well-kept secret almost. We went there, for some much needed family exercise, in between Christmas and New Year. Even on a slightly grey...More
