Attingham Park Houses
One of the great houses of the Midlands, Attingham Park was built in 1785 for the 1st Lord Berwick to the design of George Steuart and has a picture gallery by John Nash. The magnificent rooms contain collections of ambassadorial silver, Italian furniture and Grand Tour paintings. The park, landscaped by Repton, has attractive walks along the River Tern and a play area and environmental centre for children.
This gorgeous Georgian mansion was built for the 1st Lord Berwick who, with his two sons, enjoyed a passion for art and music. Hence the fine paintings and a Samuel Green organ, played for your enjoyment in the season.
Today the parkland around Attingham is ideal for woodland walks through the deer park, especially for those wanting views of the Wrekin or those Blue Remembered Hills that Housman wrote about.
Free costumed introductory talks and guided tours of the house available from 12 on house open days, except Bank Holiday Mondays.
