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.

There’s always something to see along the river at Charlecote

Get away from all those distractions of modern life and take a stroll through the timeless landscape of Charlecote’s parkland. While the trees are still bare there are uninterrupted views - an ideal time of year to see our fallow deer and other wildlife.

Enjoy colour and scent in the gardens with masses of new growth everywhere. Hellebores are looking glorious in the woodland and the tulips are starting to bloom 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. How about a picnic by the river – just wrap up warm and bring a flask of something hot.

The house is open every day except Wednesday.
