Attingham is an 18th-century mansion and estate shaped by a story of love and neglect.

Built for the first Lord Berwick in 1785, Attingham Hall and its beautiful parkland were owned by one family for more than 160 years. As their fortunes rose and fell they proved themselves to be spenders, savers and saviours - providing a fascinating story of love and neglect whose mark still stands in Attingham’s rooms today.

 

Other Things to do in the Area

As well as tours of the mansion house, the estate extends to 200 acres with a deer park, walking routes, a walled garden, and the field with children's play area. There is the Carriage House Cafe and a shop.  Dogs are welcome, please see the guide for dog owners on arrival.
