Stansted Park is home to stunning weddings, forest walks, afternoon teas and some of the best events in the south! Visit the Mansion with its State rooms and fully furnished Servants’ Quarters for a real sense of a bygone era.
The Grounds and Walled Gardens are open all year, this includes the Arboretum, The Pavilion Tearoom, The Stansted Park Garden Centre, The Stansted Park Farm Shop and The Maze & Railway.
Stansted Forest provides many routes for walkers and cyclists and is enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year. The estate is carefully managed to conserve wildlife habitats which means Stansted is home to a variety of unusual birds, plants and insects.
