Inspired by Baroque palaces of Europe, the 17th-century Petworth House displays one of the finest art collections in the care of the National Trust. See the state rooms featuring paintings and sculpture, including artwork by Van Dyck, Turner, Reynolds and Gainsborough.

Petworth House’s history has been created by one family over 900 years, with the collection highlighting a journey through history including the Gunpowder Plot and Napoleonic Wars. Collection highlights include the earliest English globe in existence, dating to 1592, and carvings by Grinling Gibbons.

Access to the House is step-free, with designated parking provided for visitors with disabilities and transport available between the car park and the House. The art collection in Petworth House is on the ground floor with level access. There are some steps to the bedrooms and to access rooms in the Servants' Quarters. The Pleasure Garden has some uneven and sloped pathways. An accessible map showing surfaces, steps and slopes is available from visitor reception.

The Servants’ Quarters, including the historic kitchens, show a glimpse into the life of the people who worked here.

Outside, the Pleasure Garden features formal borders, woodland walks, and architectural features, such as the Ionic Rotunda. The 700-acre Deer Park, which was transformed in the 1750s and early 1760s by the landscape architect Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, is home to ancient trees and fallow deer.
