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.

Built in 1671 for Lady Elizabeth Wilbraham, the house was inherited in the 18th century by Sir Henry Bridgeman, who commissioned Capability Brown to landscape the surrounding park, and James Paine to alter the house and add a Roman Bridge, a Temple to Diana and a Granary.

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.

Permanent collection

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.
