    A story of love and neglect lies at the heart of this 18th-century mansion and estate. Attingham Park was built for the 1st Lord Berwick in 1785 and was in continuous ownership by the 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. Don’t miss the atmospheric dining room set for an evening banquet that reflects its Regency splendour, or the delicate decorative scheme in the Boudoir, which has recently been revealed.

    The Mansion is at the heart of this great estate between Shrewsbury and the River Severn and is set in beautiful parkland designed to impress. Home to a wide range of wildlife, the main highlights on the estate include the Deer Park, the walled garden and miles of beautiful walks. For families, the Shoulder of Mutton play field is the perfect location for picnics, games and running off steam, with natural play equipment and wide open spaces.
