Summary

Whilst Petworth has been an ancestral seat for more than 900 years, the design of the 17th century Petworth House was influenced by some of Europe’s finest Baroque palaces. With magnificent state rooms that were built to demonstrate wealth, taste and artistic patronage, Petworth House contains a huge range of both sculpture and artwork, including pieces by Turner, Van Dyck, Gainsborough and Reynolds.

Where is Petworth House & Park located?

Petworth House sits in the centre of Petworth, which is accessible from both the A272 and the A283. Car parks are located on the A283.

What is the history of Petworth House & Park to the present day?

Petworth has been a family seat for more than 900 years, and it became the Percy family’s permanent home after Queen Elizabeth I ordered the family to remain in the south, because of suspicions about the allegiance to Mary, Queen of Scots. In the latter part of the 17th century, Elizabeth Percy, and her husband Charles Seymour began the expansion and renovation of Petworth, having been inspired by Versailles. Petworth House was gifted to the National Trust in 1947, and the current Lord and Lady Egremont still live in part of the house.
