If you enjoy a good costume drama, Charlecote Park is probably your cup of tea. You can even on a period maid’s apron and try your hand in its fully operational Victorian kitchen. Home to the Lucy family for more than 800 years, the house is one of England’s best-preserved estates with formal gardens and miles of woodland walks opposite the River Avon. Costumed volunteers lead guided tours through the brewhouse, tack room and great hall. You’re welcome to enjoy a sit-down meal at the on-site restaurant or bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the grounds, where William Shakespeare was once caught poaching.

Had a very pleasant afternoon strolling( in my case rolling) around the house and grounds. I am an ambulatory wheel chair user. They are currently working on the house, replacing the heating system...

Head Ranger Joy was an absolute delight. Knowledgeable and funny. Also an absolute brilliant and beautiful place. Really worth a visit!!!! 😃 Lots of deer too and in the summer the heritage sheep and the deer sometimes wander the park together making it like a pg version of Jurassic Park. All in all a great day out and worth every penny!!!
Lovely house and grounds. As expected of a nation trust property. Very well kept. Unfortunately upon my visit the house was closed for maintenance yet spectacular grounds were open. Parking is ample. If you have small children or bicycles you do have to cross a road from the car park to the grounds so do be careful.
