Attingham Park never fails to delight myself and my family. Each visit offers a new discovery or learning experience. The grounds are large and allow visitors to select an appropriate walking route to enjoy as part of their visit. There are cafes with indoor or outdoor seating. The gift shop has a range of tasteful gifts, books or plants; a second hand book store too. The walled garden is impressive as is the children's outdoor play area. This is a superb destination for a family day out.
Easy to find and we'll signposted. The car parks a decent size and we enjoyed our time there. Though we didn't visit the house on this occasion we did go in the souvenirs shop and book shop in the stables courtyard. There's also a nice cafe and ice cream parlour there too. The park is great for kids, it's massive with big 'forts' and logs to balance walking over along with the swings, a roundabout and small slide. The walks are nice and it's not that crowded you feel your being held up, or holding up other people. Lovely place and we'll be going back soon.
