Father's Day at Petworth House

Treat your dad to an unforgettable Father's Day at Petworth House. What better way to spend your day than with a walk around Petworth Park, look out for the fallow deer, or even bring a picnic and relax in the beautiful surroundings (fingers crossed for some more decent summer weather). This Father's Day weekend, 15th and 16th June, will also see the Petworth House stables being brought to life by our historical interpreters and horses!  Enjoy an exciting and rare opportunity to explore the stables and discover their rich history - from racehorses to warhorses.

There's also plenty to see in the house, firm favourites with dads usually include the intricate Grinling Gibbons carvings in the Carved Room and the Molyneux globe, dated at 1592 it's possibly the earliest English globe in existence, supposedly given to The Wizard Earl by Sir Walter Raleigh during the time they spent in the tower together during the early 17th century.

What will you discover?
