The House and Grounds are now open but will be closed from 31st August to 4th September (inclusive). For details of opening times please see Opening & Admissions page.

We hope visitors will appreciate the reasons for opening later in the year than usual but we are introducing measures to ensure we comply with the Government guidelines to provide a safe environment for visitors and our staff.

We would ask that all Visitors to the House wear face masks unless exempt and we thank you for your cooperation.

The Classic Car Exhibition and the film will remain closed for the time being but we will be reviewing the position as the Government guidelines change.

Please note that booking of combined House and Grounds tickets must be made on line. A limited number of tickets will be made available for set entry times and these will need to be booked and paid for in advance. Access to the House will be on the basis of guided tours with each tour lasting approximately 45 minutes. However, there is no need to pre book entry to the Grounds only and tickets may be purchased on arrival at the shop.

Members will also need to book if they wish to visit the House and Grounds but not for Grounds only.

This system of booking prior to entrance to the House also applies to Members. We will continue with this advance booking system for the foreseeable future.

At this time we are unable to undertake Group Visits.


Set in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside and home to the Earls of Pembroke since the 1540s, Wilton House and the Grounds offers a wonderful day out for all the family.

Stroll around the House with its 17th century interiors and world famous art collection by renowned artists such as van Dyck, Pieter Brueghel, Rembrandt van Rijn and Richard Wilson.

With over 22 acres of parkland and gardens, bordered by the rivers Wylye and Nadder, the Grounds are perfect for visitors to explore or to relax in and have a picnic.

Wilton House welcomes disabled visitors and those with special needs.

Please note:  Although the House and Grounds are fully wheelchair accessible, the route does incorporate some ramps and gravel paths. We would advise wheelchair users to bring a companion on their visit.  Should you wish to discuss any particular requirements please do not hesitate to contact us.

Adventure Playground
The Adventure playground is open in accordance with Government Guidelines.

The Café will be open and operating within the Government’s guidelines.

Whatever your preference, we look forward to seeing you here at Wilton House and hope you have a thoroughly enjoyable visit.

We welcome photography in the grounds but there is a strict ‘No Photography’ policy in the house.

Dogs in cars
The RSPCA advises that animals should never be left unattended in vehicles in warm weather. Dogs can die from heatstroke in as little as 20 minutes: leaving the car in the shade, the car windows open or providing a bowl of water inside does not help. Please be aware that the Police/RSPCA may be called if dogs are left unattended in vehicles. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Please Note: No dogs allowed in the House & Grounds unless they are Assistance Dogs.
