Wormleybury is an 18th-century house and landscaped park of 57ha (140 acres) near Wormley in Hertfordshire, England.

Wormleybury House was built by Robert Mylne in 1767-69 for Sir Abraham Hume, 1st Baronet on the site of an earlier house which had been built in 1733-35 by his elder brother, Alexander Hume (d 1765), from whom he had inherited the estate. It was embellished by Robert Adam in 1777-79. The drawing room has painted roundels by Angelica Kauffman. [1] The house is a Grade I listed building. [2]

The park is also listed Grade II by English Heritage [3]

In 1825 the parish records from the Parish Church of St. Laurence, Wormley were lodged with Sir Abraham Hume in Wormleybury.
