About Us

A stunning grade 2 listed Georgian mansion nestled in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, Wherstead Park is now one of East Anglia’s most popular and versatile venues for weddings, conferences, events, parties and filming.

Steeped in history our enchanting venue sits amid 17 acres of private grounds, featuring Georgian architecture, a beautiful rose garden, lawns, a croquet pitch and so much more. Whether you’re planning a lavish celebration for up to 400 guests or an intimate affair for 15, our experienced team of events staff will help you ensure that your event runs as planned on the day.

In addition to hosting private gatherings, Wherstead Park is home to several public events throughout the year. From Opera in the Park to our beloved Christmas show and party nights, our diary has something for everyone to enjoy.

Wherstead Park Mansion

Fondly referred to by the events team as our Downton, historically this house has played a role in entertaining and accommodating guests since 1792. Its sweeping staircase, marbled columns and domed roof have proved a home, office, venue for a huge array of people and our events team can’t wait to explore what the mansion could offer you.

The Grounds

Once designed by Humphrey Repton as a deer park to surround the main house, our grounds today now transform with limitless opportunities for wedding ceremonies, outdoor concerts, parties, cinemas, beer gardens, the list goes on!

Our Team

Here at Wherstead we believe our grounds and mansion are beautiful, but it’s the people that work here that truly make it is special.

We’re a small dynamic team with over 40 years’ combined experience in the events and hospitality industry. If it’s a conferencing specialist you’re looking for, a bespoke wedding, an outdoor musical event etc… we’ve got that covered!
