Magnificent country house and park with an internationally important art collection

The vast late 17th-century mansion is set in a beautiful 283-hectare (700-acre) deer park, landscaped by 'Capability' Brown and immortalised in Turner's paintings.

Inside, the house contains the National Trust's finest collection of pictures, with numerous works by Turner, Van Dyck, Reynolds and Blake, ancient and Neo-classical sculpture, fine furniture and carvings by Grinling Gibbons.

The servants' quarters contain fascinating kitchens (including a copper batterie de cuisine of more than 1,000 pieces) and other service rooms.

Over the course of the next two years, a series of major conservation and curatorial projects are happening at Petworth House. The roof is undergoing much needed restoration; over 200 paintings are being relit with more energy-efficient picture lights and we have lots of new events and tours going on.
