Tring Park Mansion is a country house in Tring in Hertfordshire. It was purchased by Baron Lionel de Rothschild in 1872, and in 1889 its grounds became the site of the Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum. The private museum was a 21st birthday present to Baron de Rothschild's grandson Walter who had a passion for Zoology.

Today, the mansion is home to The Tring Park School for the Performing Arts, and parts of the surrounding parkland are open to the public, and managed by the Woodland Trust.
