Wilton House, the family home of the Earls of Pembroke since the mid 16C, has beautiful 17C interiors and is set in extensive parkland with attractive gardens. Our guided tour will focus on the excellent collection of portraits, some by Van Dyke and Lely. We shall divide into two groups as the programme below indicates.
Your individual ticket will also entitle you to see the special photographic exhibition “Cecil Beaton at Wilton”, the collection of classic cars and to walk in the grounds in your own time.
Lunch is not included in the ticket price. The restaurant at Wilton House serves hot meals and snacks, or you may bring a picnic to eat in the grounds. The centre of Wilton is a 15 minute walk and the Wilton Outlet Village, which has eating places, is a 5 minute walk.
PLEASE NOTE:- WILTON HOUSE REQUIRES PAYMENT ONE MONTH IN ADVANCE OF THE VISIT, SO BOOKING WILL CLOSE ON MAY 11.
