Wrest Park 

SUITABLE FOR

Everyone

Join our collections team and discover a treasure trove of unique and
special objects not usually on display to the public, spanning 2,000 years of England's history.

Go beyond the grounds and discover an Aladdin’s cave of treasures in our Archaeological Collections Store. Re-purposed from floor to ceiling, the store at Wrest Park houses over 153,000 historical artefacts spanning over 2,000 years of England’s history.

Tours take place on the first Monday of the month (except where there is a Bank Holiday when the tours will be held on the following Monday), and demonstrate how we meet the challenges of caring for these precious objects, and what they tell us about the amazing properties in our care.
