Bestriding the border of Staffordshire and Shropshire, Weston Park was the ancestral seat of the Earls of Bradford, until it was gifted to the nation by Richard the 7th Earl of Bradford in 1986. A highly sought after 17th Century Grade I listed stately home, it is internationally renowned for its fine art collection, and is now in the care of the trustees of the Weston Park Foundation.
Set in 1000 acres of stunning greenery in Weston-under-Lizard, the estate’s grounds could be said to be its finest treasure. Landscaped by ‘England’s greatest gardener’ Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, three centuries of garden design combine to create one of the country’s most striking exhibitions of natural beauty. Comprising gardens and a large park, the grounds feature a Roman Bridge and the Temple of Diana, both designed by noted architect James Paine, and Capability Brown’s trademark rolling lawns, scattered copses and a magnificent lake and boathouse.
Weston Park hosts private house parties, weddings, corporate events and celebrations throughout the year, and its estate is open for visitors to explore during summer months. You can find more information at www.weston-park.com.
