Our glorious gardens are waiting for you…
The mansion is currently closed due to Covid-19 guidelines, but you can now spend an entire day exploring our stunning 50 acres, book fascinating garden tours - and even sit down for a story with Grimm & Co!
Every Wednesday to Sunday, head to Wentworth Woodhouse to discover a wildflower meadow, ancient trees, shaded woodland copses and a spectacular summer herbaceous border in full bloom.
Find 18th century follies and monuments, picnic on the lawns, or follow a visitor’s route which begins with a trip through the Stables to the Mulberry Garden, where an outdoor piano is waiting to be played.
Children can enjoy games on the West Lawns, tumble down Roly Poly Hill and explore the Barefoot Garden.
Don’t miss the sweeping views from the Ha-Ha and South Terrace, and be sure to head to the Ionic Temple and Camellia House.
There’s an arty theme too, with sculptures by renowned artists to discover and art workshops for The Flock, a spectacular art installation happening this autumn.
The Flock’s 10,000 hand-painted wooden birds will take over the East Front lawns – a moving communal artwork recording your feelings on the Covid-19 pandemic.
Book one of our picnics, visit the pop-up outdoor gift shop and al fresco tearoom – and bring your dog too!
Garden admission tickets can be booked online or bought at the Stables gate (contactless payments only).
