We attended my sister in law's wedding, the venue is beautiful, the food was good, it seems a shame this place is closing down as it has so much beauty.

Lovely walk around Wentworth Gardens this afternoon. Browsed the plants for sale and had a gorgeous scone in the cafe! Cafe is pricey if you're wanting a meal but not so bad for cake and a coffee.

I was recently overwhelmed by the experience of being a bridemaid at the Wentworth castle conservatory and grounds. Such a shame they are shutting this place to the public now. What are they thinking?!?! So silly.

No they don't but if you don't want to go into the garden you can walk around the edge which is lovely. You can go as far as the visitor centre for a drink etc but not through into the actual gardens.
