Overview

Weston Park is the former ancestral home of the Earls of Bradford and is owned by the Weston Park Foundation, an independent charitable trust.

The House is not only home to a world class collection of art, antiques, silver and fine china, it also becomes home to this celebrating special events including weddings and birthdays.

There are 1,000 acres of Capability Brown Parkland to explore and enjoy whether on foot or by bike and our fun filled adventure playground is nestled in Brown’s Pleasure Ground of Temple Wood.

The gardens reflect over 300 years of garden design from the informality of the landscape to the formal lines of the Victorian terraces laid out by Edward Kemp.

Our own Head Gardener has also created new gardens from the Teardrop Garden in the late 20th century to Lady Anne’s Memorial Garden more recently.

Fun Facts

One of the finest items in the Collection is the 17th century Burse and Great Seal of England. Sir Orlando Bridgeman was the Lord Keeper of the Seal during the reign of Charles II. As the son of a protestant Bishop, he refused to apply the Seal to the Declaration of Indulgence and resigned office. He kept the Seal, which was melted down to create a large stem cup and the Burse in which it would have been carried.

Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli was a frequent visitor to Weston and gave Selina, Countess of Bradford a yellow parrot which flew happily around the Orangery for over 20 years before laying 24 eggs in as many days and promptly falling off its perch.
