Petworth House & Park


The beauty and drama of this 17th century palace inspired the artist JMW Turner time and time again. Petworth became Turner’s favourite retreat and he was a regular guest of the 3rd Earl of Egremont. Today a world famous art collection fills the gallery and extravagant state rooms are yours to discover.

Across the courtyard the lives of generations of cooks, maids and butlers are brought to life in the long corridors of the Servants’ Quarters. Here you can relax, enjoy a drink, taste locally produced food in the Coffee Shop or Restaurant and find the perfect souvenir in the Gift Shop.

Outdoors, there’s 700 acres of parkland to explore with stunning views of the South Downs. An impressive herd of Fallow deer roam amongst ancient trees, and the Pleasure Grounds are filled with wildflowers and woodland walks.
