NATIONAL TRUST SPECIAL – ATTINGHAM PARK


Saturday 29 September 2018

An 18th Century Mansion shaped by a story of love and neglect.

Built for the first Lord Berwick in 1785, Attingham was owned by one family for more than 160 years. As fortunes rose and fell they proved themselves to be spenders, savers and saviours, leaving a tantalising story of love and neglect whose mark still shows in Attingham’s fascinating rooms today. Attingham’s saviours, the eighth Lord and Lady, have done much to bring the mansion back to life, not least a restoration of the stunning roof of the picture gallery.

Discover the traces of the family story throughout the mansion, from the flashy but flawed Picture Gallery roof that contributed to the bankruptcy of the second Lord Berwick, to the prized paintings of the cattle that the fifth Lord loved.

Outside, discover the tranquil space of the Walled Garden and bring some produce home with you from the shop. Or walk through the woodlands and deer park to see what wildlife you can spot.

Attingham is now owned by the National Trust and we are pleased to offer an appropriate discount for NT members.

The train travels to Telford Central where coaches will be waiting for the transfer to Attingham Park, taking around twenty five minutes. You will have around four hours to explore.
