Wentworth Woodhouse is owned and operated by Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust (WWPT).

Wentworth Woodhouse is arguably the most challenging and exciting regeneration project of our generation. Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust is committed to delivering high quality, creative and relevant visitor experiences and an empowered and connected workforce. We serve the following purposes:

  1. To preserve the house and grounds on a long term sustainable basis with extensive public opening;
  2. To find sustainable and sympathetic uses for those parts of the property not open to the public;
  3. To raise funds both for acquisition and repairs and other essential works.

The Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust is a charitable company limited by guarantee and has been established to secure a long-term future for Wentworth Woodhouse.

The WWPT charity number is 1155374 and the company number is 08809187.
