After decades behind virtually closed doors, its treasures overgrown and largely unknown, English Heritage is reviving one of Britain's largest and most important 'secret gardens' - Wrest Park.

This is a wonderful 90-acre historic landscape and French-style mansion which will take its rightful place among the country's great garden attractions - and give locals and visitors to Bedfordshire a superb new day out.

Stroll in the recently restored Italian and Rose Gardens. Enjoy miles of reinstated historic pathways as you discover the garden buildings, pavilion and statues.

The gardens are a mix of open space and sheltered woodland walks, complimented by expanses of water in which the trees and great buildings are reflected, while Chinese and Roman architecture catch the attention.

Find out more about the garden, and the people that shaped it, in our new exhibitions in the house and garden buildings.

Don't miss:

A range of activities to bring the garden to life for children - including themed play areas and special activity packs for families

A brand new visitor centre with café, exhibition and plant sales area

A peek into the Countess's Sitting Room in the mansion

Venue Type:

Heritage site, Garden, parklands or rural site
