Wilton House has been the seat of the Earls of Pembroke since the 1540s and is still very much a family home.  It offers visitors 17th century interiors, a world famous art collection and sculpture gallery, and rooms full of over 460 years of Pembroke family history. Since 1544, when the buildings and land were granted by Henry VIII to Sir William Herbert, Wilton House has been inextricably linked to the political and artistic circles of England, whilst at the same time providing employment and homes for estate workers. This pattern continues today. The 17th Earl initiated a major programme of restoration and improvement, a task which the current Earl continues.


22 acres of parkland and gardens bordered by the rivers Wylye and Nadder are perfect for visitors to explore or to relax in and have a picnic.


A wonderful place for children to let off steam, our purpose built adventure playground is ideal for all ages, with a special area reserved for toddlers and the under 5’s.


Our licenced café is a great place serving morning coffees, light lunches, afternoon teas as well as take-away drinks, snacks and ice creams.

The shop offers a wide choice of pretty gifts, cards, toys and souvenirs.
