We welcome self-led school visits (we can provide an introductory talk).
Find out about the Victorian life of the wealthy Lucy family and their servants in the house and outbuildings.
The gardens and parkland are a delightful environment for children to discover more about nature and habitats.
We’ll work with you to create a rewarding experience for children of all ages.
Whether you come to Charlecote for a family outing or for an organised group visit, we hope everyone leaves knowing a little more than they did before.
On the day of your visit, join one of our volunteer-led walks and talks in the house and parkland to find out more about our history, wildlife and conservation work. Or book ahead for a behind-the-scenes tour with our Park Ranger or Head Gardener.
Our diverse team of volunteers are always keen to pass on their knowledge to our visitors and to new volunteers.
Have you thought about volunteering with us? It’s a great opportunity to learn more about all the aspects of Charlecote that interest you, and many of our volunteers bring a wealth of knowledge with them that they can share with us too.
From time to time, we can offer a placement with the house team for
work experience as a volunteer. To find out more, contact Julie Griffith. Many of our treasured objects are fragile and we're unable to accommodate under-16s in the house.
For placements with the park and garden team, contact Lisa Topham for information. We're unable to accommodate under-16s as we use heavy garden machinery and specialised equipment.
