Lovely day out on a sunny Sunday. Great area to walk and super to see the deer being fed. You can get really close.
The place was very busy on a sunny Sunday but walk a little further and lose the crowds. Take a look at the walled garden. Here they grow organically and it’s very well laid out.

A lovely house set in extensive parkland. Knowledgeable guides who are on hand to answer any questions.

We enjoyed the knowledgeable guides' stories and the 'kitchen staff' with their historic dishes. The gardens,with their almost year round interest, and estate are extensive. Good restaurant and cafe.

Frequently we walk round Attingham Park, which we love, followed by well deserved lunch. Although we realised it would be very busy Easter Sunday, we decided to go. The walk was fine however the lunch was disappointing. The queue was surprisingly short and the food arrived quite promptly but the portions were smaller than usual. My jacket potato with tuna mayo literally had one spoonful of topping with minimal coleslaw and my husband's soup arrived with a small piece of bread( in fact we bought a cheese scone to compensate). I do object to this, as eating at a National Trust property is not cheap and you do expect to receive standard portions regardless of how busy it is.

My wife managed to get a well earned Saturday off so we decided to blow away the cobwebs and visit Attingham as part of our National Trust membership, which we don't use often enough.
As it was the Easter bank holiday weekend the site was very busy, but speaking to the staff, who were excellent and very helpful, the site is one of the busiest properties owned by the Trust, so expect crowds. Due to the size of the manor and grounds though you aren't stepping on other people's feet.
There was an Easter egg hunt and face painting for the kids which was really well organised, which helped ease the crowds into the grounds in search of the golden egg.
Each room had a member of very knowledgeable staff who offered history on the room and the whole of the moan or which was used as a college for many years, offering education to women and promoting their development.
The decor is stunning and you will find plenty of art and beautiful furnishings.
I would highly recommend membership to the trust, as if you do a property a month as a couple then you recoup your money and more, plus it supports the restoration and maintenance of our history.
We had to do a sneaky cream tea which as ever was great. The staff in the tearooms were as all the staff attentive and very pleasant. Expect £10 for two and drinks.
Even at this time of year with no blooms in the large walled garden this property is great and will ease a couple or three hours away on an afternoon.
Forgot to mention, pop into the secondhand book shop....bargains galore.
