We're open every day
- The park, gardens, Orangery restaurant and shop are open 7 days a week.
- Download our park walk and enjoy the tranquillity of our parkland.
- Look around the house at your own pace and find out about the Victorian Lucy family (closed Wednesdays).
- Explore the Victorian kitchen, brewhouse and laundry and reflect on their servants' tough life.
- You're always welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy by the river - everyone knows sandwiches taste better outdoors!
Walks and talks
There are just-turn-up talks and tours by our volunteers in the house and around the park nearly every day. They're all free and there's no need to book.
Introductory talks and park walks start outside the gatehouse, and the costume talks are in the great hall (house closed Wednesdays).
Our Visitor Reception staff will let you know what's happening on your way in - we can't guarantee that volunteers are available every day.
The mown grassy paths in the parkland are flat but we'd recommend sturdy footwear.
Come behind the scenes and find out about our exciting new discoveries with the park and garden team and make a day at Charlecote something special.
Our bat walks at dusk are open for booking now - see Charlecote in a new light and encounter these special mammals in our rather beautiful setting.
For a different perspective, book for a tree-climbing session with the Big Tree Climbing Company.
Our events usually sell out, so don't delay.
Open from 10.30am every day. Free wi-fi available.
Our Servants' Hall and Pantry shops stock our award-winning Charlecote venison, hogget and honey. You'll find the best of the National Trust ranges and local produce here. Don't forget our second-hand bookshop too.
- Tick things off your 50 things to do... list - fly a kite, make a trail with sticks, play Poohsticks...
- Make a den and get closer to nature in the spinney behind the stables.
- Find out about the Victorian lives of the Lucy family and their servants in the house and outbuildings.
