Attingham Park

Attingham Park is an elegant 18th century mansion set in an extensive deer park. It’s just a few miles east of Shrewsbury near the village of Atcham.

Now managed by the National Trust, it offers miles of beautiful walks, through the grounds, woodland and walled gardens. Overlooked by The Wrekin, the deer park provides a safe environment for the 180 semi-wild deer and thus plenty of photo opportunities.

Built for Lord Berwick in 1785, it remained in ownership by the family for more than 160 years. Whilst some of the wealthy family owners heaped opulence on their majestic home, others struggled to maintain the grandeur and neglection set in. It all provides a fascinating story.

The mansion, which is at the heart of the 640 acre estate, includes the impressive gallery and Dining Room, already set for an evening banquet of the highest order. Take a tour of the Boom Beach Apk download mansion and see the delicate decorative scheme in the Boudoir, which has recently been revealed. Renovation of the mansion continues to this day, and restoration of the precious Nash Roof can now be seen, also on the tour.

Visit the walled garden and see the fruit and vegetables growing that can be sampled in the restaurant and tea rooms or simply buy some to take home.

There’s a large outdoor play park area for children, with plenty of space to play, even on the busiest of days.

There’s the cafe and shop and plenty of picnic spots across the estate. Attingham Park is also wheelchair and family friendly, with facilities provided for both.
