Wrest Park Summer Visits

Following the interesting and enjoyable talk given by Richard Luscombe on The History of Wrest Park covering its 800-year History and Stories, we have been able to arrange Summer visits to Wrest Park, for a tour of the Wallpaper Rooms and a Below Stairs/ Behind the scenes tour.

When:  Monday 10th June,  Tuesday 11th June,  Sunday 8th September 2024

The ‘below the stairs’ tours can only accommodate 7 people at a time due to confined space and so, we have arranged three dates to allow for 14 people per visit,

The format of each day will be as follows:

  • 10:30 a.m.    Arrive at Wrest Park
  • 11:00 a.m.    All 14 members of the group will have the Wallpaper Rooms tour
  • 1:00p.m.       1st group of 7 will take the Below the Stairs/Behind the scenes tour
  • 2:00p.m.       2nd group of 7 will take the Below the Stairs/Behind the scenes tour

There is plenty to see and do at Wrest Park, both in the house and around the lovely gardens and other buildings and so it should be a very enjoyable day.

COST for the Visit:

English Heritage Members – you will use your membership for entry, and we ask for a £5 donation towards the Wrest Park Community Fund payable to ADPS.

NON-English Heritage members – will have to buy a day entry ticket either online beforehand or at the gate on the day. Also we ask for the £5 donation towards the Wrest Park Community Fund  payable to ADPS.

Advance online ticket for a concession without a donation is £12.70 but, at the gate, it will be more.

No charge for car parking.


Join us for a unique peek inside the mansion house at Wrest Park as we explore rooms rarely open to visitors – the amazing wallpaper rooms.
