Wrest park is a good venue to visit for St. George's Day celebrations or summer activities like learning about WW2 for children. Otherwise, it works out as very expensive for what is essentially a walk round some nicely landscaped gardens!

Lovely grounds but a bit disappointed that the house was off limits due to a wedding. As we are English Heritage members it didn’t cost us to get in but would have been extremely disappointed had we paid an entrance fee.

I don't know for sure if you can take your bikes in to the grounds but I suspect not, just walk around it is lovely in there and not so big that you would need to bike around.
