Lancelot 'Capability' Brown
Sitting gloriously wealthily in 700 acres of dear park beautifully landscaped by Capability Brown in the 1750s, Petworth House, West Sussex is the epitome of grandeur. Adorned with beautiful wood carvings by Grinling Gibbons, George Wyndham (3rd Earl of Egremont) added an enviable art collection many by the well known Joseph (William) Turner. This magnificent baroque country house with its stunning wall and ceiling paintings and long history, needs to be admired at leisure.
Outside, the park is home to the largest fallow deer herd in the country, and is so important that it is listed Grade 1 by the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. It is a lovely space to amble around, the expansive lawns dotted with lakes, while the tree studded park stretches for miles. Bring a picnic. Owned by the National Trust.
