Saturday 26 November 16, My husband and I made our first visit to Wrest Park and was very impressed with this opulent mansion with its lovely gardens, beautiful even on a cold and bright November day. Wrest Park offers miles of waterside and woodland strolls. Telling the story of an English love affair with landscape. Wrest Parks lovely gardens were... More

My second visit took place during the school holidays when I took some children. It was Halloween but we weren't interested in that, just in exploring what nature had on offer. The autumn colours were stunning and the children had so much fun collecting leaves to press and in playing in the woodland. We had taken a couple of the... More

Freecparking and you can take children to play in play area and use toilets & cafe without buying tickets for entry. Massive house but Only one room fully furnished, rest of ground floor is either partly interactive displays on the history of the house & gardens or beautiful ceilings & books/wall decorations. It would have been nice to go upstairs... More

We've visited the play park and walked through Wrest park many times but thanks to Tesco Vouchers we joined English Heritage and went in the house and gardens for free. The information at the start of the house is very interesting and the parts of the house you can see are gorgeous. Would love to be able to see more... More

Went here hoping to see round a stately home and gardens but there was very little to see in the house. The park was very interesting and we had a tour round it in a golf cart with a very knowledgeable gardener. As it was half-term the place was very busy and the café was extremely noisy and messy. All... More

We like to come here now and then to walk around the gardens and see the views during the different seasons. It's particular good to visit with the family during seasonal times like Halloween and Christmas because events are normal laid on like going on ghost walks or seeing Father Christmas.

Decided last min to visit Wrest Park as wanted somewhere nice to walk on a bright crisp October Sunday. Had a nice surprise as gardens are absolutely lovely. Different sections which have a different feel about them ... formal part and either side lots of little walk ways with interesting things at every junction. House is stunning to look at... More
