Visit Wilton House
Wednesday 12 June 2019

Wilton House is one of the great houses of England and was one of only twenty to be given a five star rating by Simon Jenkins in his definitive book ‘England’s Thousand Best Houses’.

This splendid Palladian palace with Inigo Jones and Wyatt interiors will be familiar to many of you as it has been used as a film location for countless historical dramas and films from Pride and Prejudice to The Crown.  Yet it is no mausoleum – it is still the country seat of the Earl of Pembroke and has a welcoming and friendly vibe to it.

Our visit will concentrate on the house’s internationally famous art collection.  A private guided tour of the paintings and artefacts has been arranged followed by a special buffet lunch with salmon, home-cured ham and a variety of salads.

After lunch there will be ample time for you to enjoy the formal gardens and riverside parkland, see the Pembroke Classic and Supercar Collection and view the special Cecil Beaton Exhibition for 2019 curated by Jasper Conran.

If you have never been on an Arts Society visit before, then this is the one for you!  Friends and family welcome.

The cost of this visit, including coach travel and lunch, is £55 per person.
