Weston Park in Shropshire is the former home of the Earls of Bradford.  The opulent 17th century Mansion, housing some wonderful fine art, is set in 1,000 acres of Capability Brown landscaped grounds.

The Mansion contains tributes to the 3rd Earl’s love of horses.  The Victorian library contains over 3,000 books and has unique Gobelin tapestries, specially commissioned for the house. The stunning dining room houses one of the country’s most impressive collections of paintings including works by renowned artists such as Sir Anthony Van Dyck.

The visit included travel by coach followed by coffee on arrival.  The day included two tours, a two course lunch, and free time to explore the house and grounds.

To end the day we had a reviving cup of tea and cake before departing home.
