Attingham Park
Attingham Park is a country house in Shropshire, England, which is owned by the National Trust. It is a Grade I listed building.

It is located near to the village of Atcham, on the B4380 Shrewsbury to Wellington road.

Attingham Park was designed by George Steuart and was built in 1785 for Noel Hill, 1st Baron Berwick on the site of an earlier house built to his own designs by Richard Hill of Hawkstone. Later, John Nash added the picture gallery. It was the seat of the Barons Berwick until that title became extinct in 1953. Between 1948 and 1971 an Adult Education College occupied the hall, run by Sir George Trevelyan. Attingham Park is now the regional headquarters of the National Trust and also on the estate is the Shropshire office of Natural England.

The Estate
The park was landscaped by Humphry Repton and includes woodlands and a deer park, with between 200 and 300 head of Fallow deer (according to season). The grounds also include walled gardens and an orchard. The River Tern, which flows through the middle of the park, joins the larger River Severn near the park boundary.
