Wrap up warm this Christmas
Why not escape from the hustle and bustle of this time of year and head outdoors to explore our wintry grounds. Get out and about and take in the magical frosty landscape on a crisp winter and enjoy the vistas across the Shropshire Hills.
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. Next time you plan your visit, you can download one of our walks from our website, or pick a walking map up from Visitor Reception
Take the opportunity to get closer to our herd of fallow deer and watch our wardens 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 is a long tradition at Attingham to feed the deer; the eighth Lord Berwick loved his fallow deer herd so much he would often feed them himself. We’ll be feeding them, on show, every weekend at 2pm from Saturday 5 November until March 2017, and daily in the Shropshire Christmas school holidays.
