Wrest Park

  • So Much to Explore
Open weekends 10am - 4pm St George's Festival | Sat 26 & Sun 27 April So Much to Explore | Interactive Map Dairy sculpture gallery launches | Beautiful historic statues

After decades behind virtually closed doors, its treasures overgrown and largely unknown, English Heritage is reviving one of Britain's largest and most important 'secret gardens' - Wrest Park in Bedfordshire.

This is a wonderful 90-acre historic landscape and French-style mansion which will take its rightful place amongst the country's great garden attractions - and give locals and visitors to Bedfordshire a superb new day out.

Stroll in the recently restored Italian and Rose Gardens. Enjoy miles of reinstated historic pathways as you discover the garden buildings, pavilion and statues. Find out more about the garden and the people that shaped it, in our new exhibitions in the house and garden buildings.
