Wilton House is the property of the Earl of Pembroke and has been in his family for over 450 years. The house you see today was constructed in 1647 and built in the Palladian style: the Single and Double Cube Rooms are considered to be the finest examples of Palladian architecture in England. Later generations added to the original. A Palladian style bridge over the River Nadder was built in 1737 and cloisters on two levels were added in the 19th century. The house contains a world famous collection of Van Dycks. The interiors are much in demand for film sets and the extensive grounds beside the River Nadder have walks, gardens and water features. An interpretive centre has been created in the Old Riding School where visitors are introduced to the property with an award-winning film. There is an adventure playground for children and special children's activities in school holidays. Facilities are in place for disabled visitors. There is a shop and restaurant on site.
