Superb Tudor house and landscape deer park

Charlecote has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. Their stories are told throughout the house with their portraits as well as through the objects they collected from around the world. See the design influence they had on the house and parkland. Step into the house today and you will see how Mary Elizabeth Lucy spared no expense furnishing it in Victorian times.

The gardens include a formal parterre, colourful herbaceous planting, woodland walk and the wider parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown), which offers miles of walks and views across the River Avon. A herd of fallow deer has been in the park since Tudor times.

Get away from all those distractions of modern life and take a stroll through the timeless landscape of Charlecote’s parkland. Enjoy the views and you'll almost certainly see our fallow deer and other wildlife.

Enjoy colour and scent in the gardens. There are plants for shade in the tranquil woodland garden and hundreds of tulips are a glorious sight in the parterre.

Explore the outbuildings and the Victorian kitchen for a taste of Victorian life. The shop and restaurant are open every day too if you feel like treating yourself. See our Events programme for late spring and summer.

The house is open every day except Wednesday.
