Went over this a few years ago in a hot air balloon, it was stunning from the air. And just has good from the ground. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained, with something different in every part. The rooms that are open are nice to walk round. All in all a great place.

Wrest park has had a lot of improvements done over recent years most for the better. This is a beautiful place too visit full of natural and man made beauty. It’s a great place for a picnic and too let small children run around.
However it is very expensive too get in over £10 for an adult so no good if you’re on a budget and you get a lot of presser to join the National heritage. The restaurant and shop are laughably expensive so take a picnic. With all the work that has been done no one thought to clear the once lovely river of weed so there wasn’t many ducks, swans, geese or really anything alive except tadpoles, this is inexcusable. But the core essence of wrest park are still there a nice calm environment that is very peaceful. The big house is absolutely amazing with a lot of historical information dotted around.

Beautiful grounds. Had lovely afternoon with family and dog, great that dogs have to be on a lead as ours is a new rescue dog and nervous around loose dogs.
Reason for low rating was the entrance cost! If it was half the price I would come far more regularly and probably get a season ticket! It is just a large park at the end of the day however beautiful!

If you get there when it opens, you can have the acres of space almost to yourself. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, the trees were beautiful against the blue sky and it was great fun exploring again, especially in those places where work had been done since my last visit. The Judas trees and wisterias against the walls were stunning. Even came home with new salvias for the garden,

We went with family including 4 year old grandaughter for a few hours out. Wrest Park is absolutely beautiful. The house and the grounds. We took a picnic and found a lovely big tree to sit under out of the sun. There is a cafe and a large childrens's play area. It is one of the most relaxing places I have been to in a long time. We will definitely be going back very soon. I do not know why I hadn't heard of it up until now.
