Dudmaston is a fine example of a traditional working Shropshire estate with a mansion at its heart.
Built in the 17th century, the classic setting of Dudmaston Hall provides a stunning contrast to its unique collection of modern and contemporary art. It is a true house of collections from the intriguing modern art galleries assembled by diplomat Sir George Labouchere, to the classical collections of botanical drawings and watercolours put together by his wife Lady Rachel.
There are nine acres of gardens to explore, which include the Rockery Bank and American Garden, which are a glorious mass of colour in spring and summer and take on the seasonal hues of autumn.
The beautiful Big Pool provides a striking view from the garden and library, whilst the Dingle offers a wooded glen to explore.
Dudmaston hosts a varied programme of events for its visitors, from guided walks of the estate to children’s craft activities and trails. Visit us this year and experience the newly opened Gallery 2 featuring handpicked items from the collection which will bring to life past characters of this ancient estate.
There are two estate walks of 5.5 and 4 miles both starting from the Hampton Loade car park, which is another 1.5 miles towards Kidderminster off the A442.
