About the Event
One of the finest and grandest Georgian houses in England!
Standing in 87 acres of gardens and grounds it has extensive views over former parkland, including a deer park and lakes, which are vested in the Fitzwilliam Wentworth Amenity Trust.
The current Wentworth Woodhouse was built for the 1st Marquess of Rockingham from circa 1725, the work continuing over four decades, and then passed to the Fitzwilliam family. The house is now owned by the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust whose sole purpose is regeneration of the site for the benefit of South Yorkshire.
In the Gardens, discover a wildflower meadow, ancient trees, shaded woodland copses and 18th Century follies. Families and garden-lovers alike can enjoy a day in the gardens and discover many hidden delights across our 50 acres.
Roam at your leisure or follow a trail which begins at the Stables and takes in the West Terrace. Don’t miss the sweeping views from the Ha-Ha and South Terrace and be sure to head to the Ionic Temple.
Finally finishing off the day with a visit to Wentworth Garden Centre & Cafe.
* Light refreshments availble in the house or if you wish you may bring a packed lunch *
