Walks and talks

Join one of our Meet the Gardener talks and find out more

There are just-turn-up talks and tours in the house and around the park nearly every day.

Introductory talks are outside the gatehouse and costume talks are in the great hall. They're free and there's no need to book. Visitor Reception staff will let you know what's happening on your way in.

The mown paths in the parkland are flat and dry at the moment but sturdy footwear recommended if it turns wet.


Treat yourselves

Our restaurant is open every day and you're welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy by the river.

Our shops stock Charlecote venison, hogget and honey, lots of locally made goodies and the best of National Trust ranges.

What's on

We've put together a great series of events at Charlecote this year.

Book ahead for outdoor drama, and join us for some special behind-the-scenes events with our Park Ranger, Head Gardener and their teams.

For families
