Nestled between Chichester and Portsmouth and part of the South Downs National Park, Stansted Park stands in 1800 acres of extraordinary landscaped parkland and ancient forest.
In 1983 the 10th Earl of Bessborough made the decision to give Stansted Park, the Arboretum, his family home and its beautiful contents to the public. Stansted Park Foundation was set up as a Charitable Trust charged with the preservation of the estate for the benefit of the nation.
Stansted Park offers an Edwardian mansion, Walled Gardens and Arboretum. Also onsite is the Stansted Farm Shop, Garden Centre, Pavilion Tea Rooms, Light Railway and Maze.
