Summer in the Pleasure Ground

Visit Petworth this summer for a delightful sea of wild flowers in the meadow and the Pleasure Ground.

Petworth is normally known for its gnarled and twisted ancient trees standing proudly in the park but it's also somewhere to enjoy refreshing summer colour of wildflowers and warm hues in the Pleasure Ground borders.

New for 2017 see the Servants' Quarters border blooming with cheery asters, helleniums and crocosmia, sure to brighten up your day with seating available nearby to enjoy a light lunch, snack or drink.

Look out for the signs of summr with a walk around the monuments of the Pleasure Grounds or take a longer stroll around the 700 acre park.

To find out if any of your favourite flowers are out and looking their best then follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates.
