Colourful autumn days
- Kick through falling leaves as the trees take on firelight colours in the parkland
- Look for wildlife and see our fallow deer.
- There are plenty of late-season flowers to admire and inspire in the gardens.
- Explore the house and see what we're cooking in the Victorian kitchen.
- Browse for Christmas gifts and treats in the Servants’ Hall shop.
Walks and talks
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 grassy paths in the parkland are flat but we'd recommend sturdy footwear now that the weather has turned wetter.
- Tick things off your 50 things to do... list - fly a kite, catch a falling leaf, play conkers...
- Find out about the Victorian lives of the Lucy family and their servants in the house and outbuildings.
- Enjoy the space and fresh air whatever the weather. There's always wildlife to spot in the parkland and along the river.
Our Orangery restaurant will be closed for refurbishment 3-23 November (hot and cold drinks and cakes still available). You're always 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 the National Trust ranges.
