Plan your visit 

As the summer slowly fades and autumn arrives, explore Attingham where you'll be surrounded by acres of parkland with plenty of space to stretch your legs, run wild or find that perfect spot to relax in. The Mansion tells the story of the Berwick family and how their fortunes rose and fell, while in the vast grounds there are miles of walks, an organic walled garden and plenty to explore in the Field of Play. Full of life and locally loved, there’s something new to see all year round. When will you plan your next adventure?
