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
A wonderful place for children to let off steam, the purpose built adventure playground is ideal for all ages, with a special area reserved for toddlers and the under 5s.

The licenced cafe serves morning coffees, light lunches, afternoon teas as well as take-away drinks, snacks and ice creams.

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 flash photography, tripods, lighting equipment and selfie sticks are not permitted in the house. We reserve the right to ask visitors taking part in any  kind of unauthorised promotional or commercial photography/videography to leave the premises.

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: Dogs are not allowed in the House & Grounds unless they are Assistance Dogs.
