Notice: 18/12/2014 Twilight Santa event update: due to high demand we're limiting tickets to see Father Christmas at our Twilight Santa on 18 & 19 December to ensure that he has time to see everyone who gets a ticket. Tickets are available from Visitor Reception from 3pm on the day and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

An 18th-century mansion and estate shaped by a story of love and neglect

Built for the first Lord Berwick in 1785, Attingham Hall and its beautiful parkland were owned by one family for more than 160 years. As their fortunes rose and fell they proved themselves to be spenders, savers and saviours - providing a fascinating story of love and neglect whose mark still stands in Attingham’s rooms today.

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.  

Attingham’s saviours, the eighth Lord and Lady, began restoration work that lives on in the Attingham Re-Discovered project. This project aims to bring the mansion back to life, and in 2014, visitors can step behind the scenes and see our conservation work in action as we work to rescue and restore the stunning Nash roof covering the Picture Gallery.

Don’t miss:

•    Admire the contrasting rooms in the “masculine” and “feminine” sides of the mansion

•    Discover the tranquil space of the Walled Garden – and bring some produce home with you from our shop

•    Step behind the scenes and take a look at our Through the Roof exhibition

•    Walk through our woodlands and deer park to see what wildlife you can spot

•    Bring the family to run off steam in our natural play field – why not borrow some sports equipment on your   visit and play table tennis?
