Welcome to our family home Wilton House, our home which has been lived in continuously by successive generations of the family for over 460 years.
Since 1544, when the buildings and land were granted by Henry VIII to my ancestor, Sir William Herbert, Wilton House has been inextricably linked to the political and artistic circles of England, whilst at the same time providing employment and homes for estate workers. This pattern continues today, but, against this traditional background, changes are afoot. My father, Henry, 17th Earl, initiated a major programme of restoration and improvement, a task which I am continuing. 2010 saw the completion of another phase of the restoration, that of the Dining Room and Cloisters. This project received the 2010 HHA/Sothebys Restoration Award.
In 2013 we continue this work. So, whether you come to stroll in the grounds, watch your children let off steam in the adventure playground, or enjoy the art collection in the House, we believe that you are seeing Wilton in the finest condition it has been for many years.
We wish you a splendid visit and a happy
The Earl and Countess of Pembroke
