Great big house to explore with bags of history, but what does it for my family is the gardens and the events they put on periodically. Gardens are immaculate with loads of places to play for the kids especially the folly, although that's being renovated at the moment (Oct 2016). St Georges day is a good one, and every Sunday...

I love visiting Wrest Park the grounds are vast, there is a vehicle that takes you around the park if you dont want to walk, its free. We took the grandchildren just before Christmas to see Father Christmas, it was really lovely inside the big house. Definitely well worth a visit.

This is an English Heritage property where you can visit the grounds as the house is usually out of bounds. The park is large with a few monuments (e.g. orangery, summerhouse) to visit on the way as well as a made up canal. There is also a cafe and shop. Nice day out all year around !

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
