Perfectly situated at the heart of 1,000 acres of park landscaped by Capability Brown, Weston Park is home to an internationally important collection of fine art, tapestries, ceramics, silver and furniture.
Over the years, Weston has played host to many distinguished guests, including Prime Minister Disraeli, King George V's daughter Mary, and the Princess Royal, who spent part of her honeymoon there. The G8 Summit Retreat was held at Weston in 1998.
The house at Weston contains one of the most significant art collections in the UK, including works by Van Dyck, Holbein, Gainsborough, Reynolds and Stubbs. There is furniture by Thomas Chippendale and royal furniture makers Morel and Hughes, as well as a superb set of Gobelins tapestries in the Tapestry Room. British ceramics are complemented by Japanese and Chinese porcelain, and among the silver items is a stem cup fashioned from Charles II's Great Seal of England.
You can enjoy leisurely walks through the formal gardens and pleasure grounds. Children can play giant chess games in the Stables Courtyard, run around the Woodland Adventure Playground or ride on the miniature railway. There's extensive picnic area, a farm shop, and an informal Granary Grill Restaurant. The Granary Art Gallery is open all year round, hosting selling exhibitions by acclaimed artists.
