Petworth House, West Sussex

Pop by 'n say hi!Petworth House, West Sussex Petworth House is a 17th century,  Grade I listed country house in West Sussex.  Today Petworth House and Park are in the care of the National Trust.  Over the years they have been owned by earls, dukes and royal relatives.  The House is set in a large deer park.  There were previously elaborate Elizabethan gardens where that Capability Brown landscaped park now lies.  The manor house at that time, which predates the current Petworth House, was a gift from Henry I’s wife to her brother in 1150.  As beautiful as Petworth House is from the outside, it is inside where you will find the greatest gems.  The manor houses the National Trust’s finest art collection.  An English ‘Versailles’, Petworth is know for the collection of work by Titian, van Dyck and Reynolds as well as Flexman.   The collection will be augmented next year when Petworth House hosts an exhibition of Dutch Paintings from National Trust Houses. Although entry to Petworth House is only accessible for free to National Trust members, anyone can access Petworth Park.  There is a nice  Petworth Park circular walk, popular with families on which you can explore […]

Petworth Park Walks

Pop by 'n say hi!Petworth Park Walks Petworth Park is a landscaped park in West Sussex, in the south of England.  In this Petworth Park walks post, we look at a few options for walks to explore the beautiful landscapes which the park offers.  The park, together with Petworth House is in the care of the National Trust and was redesigned by Capability Brown. There are a couple of Petworth Park walks you might consider.  The first starts from the Petworth Park car park on the A285 (not the Petworth House car park) which is managed by the National Trust.  There is a parking fee for non members but the park itself is accessible to anyone for free.   This is a circular walk, around the park, which is very popular with families.   The walk takes in the folly, lake and some decent views of Petworth House.  Best of all, there are a few points along the route where you are likely to spot deer.  See the South Downs Walking page for full details of this walk. Another of the Petworth Park walks you might consider is the Ancient Trees walk which is the National Trust recommend. Some trees in […]
