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.

We visited this English Heritage venue on May bank holiday .
Very welcoming and knowledgeable staff greeted us on arrival re parking and exiting and facilities available
Good parking areas
Maps of the estate provided free of charge.
Lovely cafe and outside seating area with adjoining gift shop and small outside area to purchase garden plants.
The grounds are beautifully kept and the house just exquisite - a fine example of a bygone era.
Due to the weather and the bank holiday it was very popular and the coffee shop and BBQ area by the orangery extremely busy.
A three piece trio played jazz and blues music on the lawns
This is a lovely place to spend quality family / personal down time in beautiful surroundings - just life’s simple pleasures
Dogs are allowed in all areas of the grounds if kept on leads ( exception being the old mansion ) water bowls for dogs placed around the grounds.
Mobile ice cream peddler on a bike circling the main areas.
Cafe serves an assortment of sandwiches, filled jacket potatoes , cakes and drinks , although many family had picnics on the vast lawns
Simple menu but sufficient
All in all a very enjoyable day out , highly recommend
Located just 7 miles outside central Bedford and just off the A6 Luton road.
