Weston has a team of volunteer guides who will happily enlighten you with information on the treasures of the rooms, as well as offer anecdotes from times gone by.
There is plenty for children to explore in the House through a selection of trails. The House operates on a free-flow basis on a Sunday afternoon and by guided tour every 45 minutes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.
A most welcoming stately home, much of its appeal stems from the fact that Weston Park was the beloved seat of the Earls of Bradford since the 17th Century. Weston was gifted to the nation by Richard, the 7th and present Earl, and, with the aid of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the collection is now in the care of the Trustees of The Weston Park Foundation.
From the Front Hall, with its tribute to the 3rd Earl’s love of horses, the Victorian Library furnished with over 3,000 books, the unique Gobelin tapestries, specially commissioned for the House, to the stunning Dining Room, which houses one of the country’s most impressive collections of paintings including works by renowned artists such as Sir Anthony Van Dyck.
The House is closed on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays
