Charlecote Park, Warwick

4.5
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.

  • Another fantastic National trust. Plenty to see outside. Gorgeous scenery. Large field for family fun and picnics. More picnic tables scattered around the estate. House is amazing. The usual bookshop and gift shop. Staff working there are excellent guides. We will definitely be going back.
  • This was our first visit to this beautiful country house and grounds, and most certainly wont be our last. Gorgeous river side setting with amazing views whichever way you look, so it's hardly surprising when you find out that a certain Capability Brown had a hand in it. The house itself is a mixture of old plus what can best be described as a large Victorian extension:-) A great day out and so glad we decided to take a picnic. Oh, and a special mention to the wonderful volunteers, and one lady in particular who answered all my questions.
  • Charlecote Park is a beautiful house and parkland owned by the amazing National Trust. I have visited this site on several occasions and I have never been disappointed. The staff are always friendly and are willing to assist your every need. On your walk around the house there are plenty of folders housing information about the rooms and their long history as a home. The volunteers are incredibly knowledgeable and never fail to teach you something new. I would definitely recommend this site for anybody wanting a lovely day out.
  • Great place for a nice walk around the grounds and to see the deer, sheep and cows. The house is well worth a look around. Would love to see more of it. Love the interractive kitchen demonstrations. Lovely food and cream teas too.
  • Well signed once you have approached the village of Hampton Lucy. An impressive Gatehouse and House , but we were only visiting the extensive gardens and grounds. Charlcote boasts a large herd of deer and Jacob Sheep. The Orangerie serves a variety of snacks, meals and drinks tho the menu could be clearer.
