Things to do at West Wycombe Park review

West Wycombe Park is a country house built in the late 18th century. As well as the park the National Trust also encourage you to visit the village and the hill.

West Wycombe house has been the home of the Dashwood family for over 300 years. It is set in 45 acres of landscaped parkland. You can explore the parkland and discover hidden temples and follies. Highlights include a Temple of Apollo, The temple of the winds with an octagonal tower and an ice house in the basement. Plus the elegant music temple, the cascade waterfall and the pretty water garden. The house is an eclectic mix of baroque, rococo and fashionable styles with eight rooms open to the public.

West Wycombe village is full of historical charm with quaint cottages and inns dating back to the 16th century. It’s a lovely place to wander, pop into a shop or enjoy a bite to eat. Free parking is available off Chorley Road. West Wycombe hill sits above the village and is the site of an Iron Age hillfort. It’s worth a climb to the top for the amazing views and there are 55 acres to explore around the hill.
