Looking after a legacy
Attingham's last owners dedicated themselves to restoring the mansion and estate to their former glory.
We're continuing their legacy today, working to protect, preserve and restore our estate so that we can share Attingham's stories and natural beauty with even more people in years to come.
Your support could help us do anything from bringing our rooms back to life to looking after our wildlife. Find out more about some of the projects we are working on below.
Thanks to you
You can see the impact of your donations on your visit today - here are just two examples.
- Look out for our chandelier in its dramatic eye-level display case - donations meant we could show it in this unique display and keep it safe during building work.
- If you need a lift, our buggy will take you to the Walled Garden and mansion. Bought with donations, it means more visitors can access more of our grounds.
Ways to donate
Drop us a line
If you're thinking about donating and would like more information, or if you'd like to talk to us about supporting our projects, please email us with the subject line 'Donation to Attingham'. Thank you for your support.
Bring in your books
Our second-hand bookshop relies on donations to fill the shelves - if you're having a clear out, why not bring your unwanted books along so that they can find a new home? Every penny we make goes straight back into caring for Attingham, and all donations are gratefully received at Visitor Reception during our opening hours.
Pick a winner
You can buy a raffle ticket from one of our friendly volunteers on your visit to the mansion. Tickets cost £1 each, and help us raise money for our projects - and you could win yourself a prize too.
Protect our parkland
Attingham's parkland is one of the richest and most important nature conservation sites for veteran trees and invertebrates in England. It's a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). There's a huge variety of wildlife on the estate, from deer and otters to salmon and kingfishers.
Help re-discover the mansion
For nearly 50 years - until the late 1990s - only a fraction of Attingham's many rooms were open to the public. Since then, our ambitious Attingham Re-discovered project has refreshed these rooms and revealed many others previously hidden from view.
Support our Walled Garden projects
Since 2008, we've undertaken an ambitious programme to restore the Walled Garden to full productivity. Like many formal kitchen gardens, this area declined after the Second World War and is now being brought back to life.
