Delight your group with a visit to Wrest Park’s magnificent 90-acre gardens. The enormous grounds were developed over more than three centuries by the aristocratic de Grey family and are enhanced with charming architecture, statues, woodland, lakes and unexpected vistas. Wrest Park is a 2016 ‘Capability’ Brown Festival hub site, making it a particularly exciting time to visit and appreciate some of his transformative work. The famous landscape architect, born in 1716, was so valued at Wrest Park; he’s even commemorated with a memorial column.
Take in two stately homes in one day. Audley End, with its imposing house and extensive gardens, is just an hour away.
