Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Worcestershire / Malvern Hills / Great Witley / Witley Court & Gardens
A massive fire in 1937 destroyed Witley Court & Gardens, once one of the largest houses of England. The interior of the house was completely ruined, leaving only a shell of the palatial structure. To contrast the ruins of the mansion, take a walk through the well-maintained gardens. Pause to admire the fountains that still work like they did in the 1800s, and use the audio guide. Visit the small, attached church where Handel once played to see some baroque frescoes. For a break, play in the treehouse and run across the rope bridge at the Wilderness Play Area.

Although this is only a shell of a building, it is magnificent. One can still imagine the grandeur of this building in its prime. The spectacular waterfalls and gardens are truly breath-taking. There is also a truly outstanding church attached to the Court but not owned by English Heritage, free to visit, donations taken but not requested to keep the building in its splendour. Facilities for able and less able persons. Nice shop, with very helpful staff. Small Coffee shop on site.
Wonderful gardens and a very imposing and elegant ruin. The carpark is large with a good size overflow but I still imagine it gets very busy in summer. Good loos and a lovely tea shop by the church nearby. The church is also very interesting. There is a good choice of walks, either around a lake or through some nice woodland and a wilderness garden.
