Charlecote Park, Warwick

(4.5/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our world travel planner, Warwick attractions like Charlecote Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 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.
  • This is one of the best National Trust places that I have visited. The staff showed involvement and dressed in the period costume in some areas of the house. The caterering is not costly but there is a lot of facilities to eat your own picnic. The house and the views from the house are really good and a river always makes a place special. There are also Deer in the park land and a plant store on site.
  • Great place to visit. So much history and information and the volunteers are so knowledgeable. The food in the orangery was of disappointing quality and they'd sold out of a lot of food.
  • Some real family history attached to this ppty. Furniture style lets you go back in time. Stewards all very helpful.
  • My wife and I had a lovely day out at Charlecote House, very family friendly place to visit. Lovely looking house with very friendly, helpful and informative staff. Some great artifacts within the house, and the kitchens provide a real feel for how things used to be especially with staff cooking with traditional methods in there. The collection of coaches in the coach house was impressive and we were told one of the largest on the country. There are walks around the grounds with an opportunity to see deer and other wildlife. Great place to visit!
