Charlecote Park, Warwick

4.5
#1 of 6 in Parks in Warwick
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.

  • Absolutely loved our day out here. Both the house and the gardens had so much to see of interest, as well as of beauty. Staff as always were so helpful and the grounds were beautifully maintained. Only complaint may be that due to it being full inside we were sat outside and that did involve a lot of wasps - however the food itself was delicious and well priced!! Would absolutely recommend this as a day out for all ages.
  • Honestly, every single National Trust place I've visited could get the same, copy / pasta 5 star review. The staff are amazing, the places are immaculately well-managed, and they make such an effort to make sure there's stuff for the kids to do as well. If you're not already a member, why not?
  • Here you'll get a bit of veriety! Something for young and old. Easy parking on-site. At the time, there was a snack&drink-van in front of entrance. You will not have to look long to see some deer. Very well kept grounds and informed staff ready to answer your questions. Plenty of flowers and bird-life (seasonal) Of course there is lots of history, but having people still living there, occupying some of the rooms, makes this place feel more alive then other Historical sites. We had a lovely arvo here and I wish you the same :)
  • Wonderful house with great kitchens and brew house. Family still live here . Grounds are beautiful too very close to river. Nice for families. Car park big and well organized.Big second hand bookshop too. Great day out and scenic part of the country
  • Less than half of the building is open and one has to book ahead to reserve a time slot to visit the gatehouse. This is recommended. But not until you've paid your money and been refused entry because they're full. Not the best start to the experience.
