With 700 acres to explore, there are endless opportunities for walking at Petworth to discover warm summer colour and we've compiled a list of downloadable walks to get you started.

Herald in the spring and discover signs of the new season as you wander the Pleasure Grounds and park. Find the monuments intermingled with new blooms of colour and take in the views of Petworth that inspired JMW Turner.

To get the most out of your walk we highly recommend trying the free interactive Park Explorer that reveals exclusive details on the impact Capability Brown's project had on the landscape as well as the power his work had to inspire contemporary artists like Turner to capture his masterpiece.

Once you've opened up the Park Explorer take a look at our downloadable walks to suit any ability that bring the history of Petworth to life including a walk that takes in the views that inspired Turner and a walk that passes our ancient and veteran trees of the park.
