Wilton House is an English country house, which has been the country seat of the Earls of Pembroke since the mid sixteenth century.
There's been a building on the site of Wilton House since the ninth century, when King Egbert founded a priory. Today Wilton House sits in 21 acres of beautiful landscaped parkland with gardens by the River Nadder.
Events are held throughout the year including the Wessex Country Fair, various exhibitions and Lord Pembroke also has his collection of classic cars available to view. As President of the Stars Appeal, the Earl of Pembroke is pleased to host the annual Walk for Wards again at Wilton House. There are more details on the Wilton House website.
Wilton House has been used as a film and TV location on many occasions - most notably for the filming of The Crown, Bridgerton, Emma, Tomb Raider, Blackadder and The Madness of King George. In 2008 the popular TV antiques programme Flog It! was set at the house.
