New for 2019. Join us on a visit to Petworth House in the parish of Petworth, West Sussex. The house is a 17th-century Grade I listed building being rebuilt in 1688 by Charles Seymour, 6th Duke of Somerset, and altered in the 1870s to the design of the architect Anthony Salvin. For centuries it was the southern home for the Percy family, Earls of Northumberland, and Petworth is famous for its extensive art collection started by George Wyndham, 3rd Earl of Egremont (1751-1837), and contains many works by his friend J. M. W. Turner. It also has an expansive deer park, landscaped by Capability Brown, which contains the largest herd of fallow deer in England. There will be plenty of time to wander around this magnificent house and maybe enjoy a coffee as well.
