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 2015, visitors can see our conservation work in action in the Picture Gallery, as we conserve and restore the lower levels of this unique space prior to the reinstallation of paintings in 2016.

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?

Walks and winter wanders

Take some time to enjoy a family walk through our parkland this winter. Amble along the riverside to see the winter reflections, see if you can glimpse the deer in the deer park, or admire the woodland after a wintry frost. Our grounds are open daily from 9am (excluding Christmas Day), and there's a free Twelve Days of Christmas trail available from our visitor reception throughout the Shropshire school holidays for little ones to enjoy.
