Wilton House, home to the 18th Earl of Pembroke, provides a fascinating insight into British history. Built on the site of a 9th century nunnery but now set in 21 acres of landscaped parkland, with water and rose gardens beside the River Nadder and Palladian Bridge.
The grounds are perfect for picnics, enjoy watching the river pass under the Palladian Bridge, see the Millennium water feature, the Japanese Water Garden and the rose displays. Take a stroll through the arboretum, discover the mysteries of the whispering seat or simply soak up the sun on one of the lawns.
Wilton House has been regularly used as a filming location and featured in the film version of Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley, The Young Victoria, The Madness of King George, The Crown and in 2017, Tomb Raider.
