Went for a walk with family as this was its last opening weekend. In summer you could easily spend 2-3 hours here. But it was freezing and we whipped round in 90mins. The conservatory is immaculate and we presented. Though the plants in it are sparse and clearly haven't been in long. The garden are very nice but some areas... More

I attended a wedding at Wentworth Castle in the renovated conservatory, it was a fabulous day in a spectacular setting. The gardens are beautiful and I can't believe that it could be lost due to lack of funding. The Rhododendrons in spring are a joy to behold and the grounds are wonderful.

Visited the castle, had a lovely walk around the grounds. Plenty of places for the grandchildren to explore and burn off some energy. Well worth a visit for all the family

Visited Bank Holiday Monday after the new year. Spent nearly 2 hours walking around the grounds taking photos in the lovely winter sunshine. Visited the renovated greenhouse and was impressed with the plants in there. Cafe was busy with families so didn't stay for a cuppa. All in all a lovely afternoon to blow away the cobwebs. Photographers delight.
