The East Front of Wentworth Woodhouse

The National Trust is working in partnership with Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust. The house and gardens are open for guided tours - read below to find out how you can visit today.

What is Wentworth Woodhouse?

Wentworth Woodhouse is one of the largest houses in Europe that was once the home of the Fitzwilliam family. The house was bought by the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust in March 2017. The Preservation Trust offers guided tours of the house and gardens. Whilst not all rooms are open, the tours help to tell the story of this great estate. The Preservation Trust is embarking on a major project to restore the house and whilst this continues, parts of Wentworth Woodhouse will continue to be open to the public while phased repairs continue.

What's the National Trust's involvement with Wentworth Woodhouse?

We will be working closely with Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust on the practical aspects of opening and managing the house, to help visitors enjoy this historic attraction in South Yorkshire. 

Is Wentworth Woodhouse a National Trust property?

No, it is owned by Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust. Our involvement is to help them open the house and build on the existing visitor experience.

How can I visit?

Wentworth Woodhouse is open now for guided tours. Tours need to be booked in advance via Wentworth Woodhouse's website. There is a 50% discount for National Trust members on all guided tours. 

What guided tours are available

There are three tours to choose from -  the Wentworth Tour, the Clifford tour and a garden tour. All offer a different perspective on the house and estate and tell the history of the rooms that are open in the house. More tours are being developed.
