Uppark House and GardensPetersfield Category Museums & Galleries, For Adults, Nature & Wildlife, Historic Sites
Perched on its vantage point high on the South Downs ridge, Uppark commands views as far south as the English Channel. Outside, the intimate gardens are being gradually restored to their original 18th-century design, with plenty of space in the adjacent meadow to play and relax with a picnic. The nearby woodland is great for exploring and den-building.
Uppark's Georgian interiors illustrate the comfort of life ‘upstairs’, in contrast with the ‘downstairs’ world of the servants. A highlight of our collection is one of the best examples of a 17th century doll's house in the country.
Due to its high elevation Uppark is exposed to extremes of weather particularly in the winter months. This can lead to closure of the property at short notice. To avoid disappointment please call to check that Uppark is open before setting out.
