A fantastic family day
Families with children - and grandchildren - of all ages will find plenty to keep everyone busy at Charlecote.
Rain or shine there's always something to do, and our visitors tell us it's a special place they love to keep returning to throughout the year.
The house re-opens on 15 February 2014. The Victorian kitchen and the outbuildings are open to explore every day.
Fun for all ages
Wrap up warm for outdoor fun at Charlecote this winter.
Explore the woodland garden and Major Mustard's woven willow house.
Walk through the gate at the end of the long border to find the grass spiral ready to run around.
Take a longer walk around the parkland and see if there are any ducks on the river.
Journey of Discovery

The restaurant offers children’s meals and snacks, and we’re happy for you to bring your own food for babies.
When we're busy, there's a tea tent for snacks in the tea-garden by the Stables so you don't have to queue in the restaurant. There are ice creams, drinks and crisps in the Gatehouse shop, and when it's really busy you can pick up a sandwich in there too.
Bring a picnic to enjoy by the river whatever the weather.
