West Wycombe Park

The house is one of the most theatrical and Italianate mid-18th-century buildings in England with facades designed as classical temples. The interior has Palmyrene painted ceilings and decoration, and pictures, furniture and sculpture all dating from the time of the 2nd baronet, Sir Francis Dashwood, founder of the Dilettanti Society. He also created the perfectly preserved rococo landscape garden set in the beautiful Chilterns countryside. This property is owned by The National Trust.

West Wycombe village also belongs to the National Trust but West Wycombe Caves and adjacent café are privately owned.
