Walking in a winter wonderland

Frost covers the park and pond as the winter sun rises in the background

Wrap up warm and get out and about at Attingham this winter, take in the magical frosty landscape of the park and enjoy the wintry vistas across the Shropshire Hills.

Winter Walks

Attingham is transformed into a winter wonderland as the frost sits across the landscape. The low winter suns shines down and the landscape begins to sparkle. Winter is a beautiful season to explore Attingham. Wrapped up warm, there is a walk and a view to discover for everyone.

With walking routes from 1 to 3 miles throughout the park, you'll find somewhere new to explore each time you visit.

Don't forget your camera! Whether you're getting a new bit of kit for Christmas, bringing an old favourite, or using your camera phone, winter sets the scene for taking some great photos at Attingham.

Next time you visit pick up a map of our walks up from Visitor Reception, or download one of our online walks before you come - like the Wildlife Walk below.

Attingham Park is home to a wide range of wildlife, don't miss the Deer Park, the Walled Garden and miles of beautiful walks.


Don't miss the deer feeding while you're here

Take the opportunity to get closer to our herd of fallow deer and watch our Ranger Team feed them in the winter months. There are around 200 fallow deer in the park, and during the winter they need supplement feed to keep them strong and healthy. It's a tradition rooted in history at Attingham to feed the deer; the eighth Lord Berwick loved his fallow deer herd so much he would often feed them himself by hand in the winter months. We’ll be feeding them, on show, every weekend at 2.30pm from November to March, and daily in the Shropshire school holidays during that time (excluding Christmas day when the site is closed).
