    Set amongst 92 acres of formal gardens inspired by the gardens of Versailles, Wrest Park is a magnificent English Heritage venue.

    Set amongst 92 acres of magnificent formal gardens inspired by the gardens of Versailles, Wrest Park is a striking venue for private dinners, corporate functions and evening entertainment. The Wrest Park estate was home to the de Grey family from the 13th Century until 1917. The present Manor House was completed in 1834 and designed by Thomas Earl de Grey, an enthusiast for 18th-century French architecture.

    Inside the house, the Rococo Dining Room, Ante-Library, Drawing Room and Library are exclusively available to host meetings, dinners, parties, celebrations and conferences for up to 100 guests. Alternatively, the magnificent Orangery has a capacity of up to 170 guests. For larger events, the Wrest Park lawn area is an ideal area for a marquee for up to 2000 guests.

    The current house at Wrest Park was built between 1834 and 1839 by the 2nd Earl de Grey, Thomas de Grey who was the first president of the Royal Institute of British Architects and an enthusiast for French architecture. The house that had stood on the site prior to this was demolished between 1834 and 1840 and was built in the C13th.

    In 2007 the Wolfson Foundation granted £400,000 to restore parts of Wrest Park. In 2010 the Heritage Lottery Fund granted over £1m to develop a new visitors centre, car park and exhibition space at Wrest Park. The Park was closed and reopened to the public in August 2011.
