Fabrics and fashions
The house is now closed until 15 February. This gives us a chance to complete a deep clean and ensure that our room guides don't freeze during the coldest weeks of the year.
Begin your visit in the Great Hall. Take a look at 400 years of Lucy family portraits and then find out more about what you see with one of our costume talks. Find out how the Lucy family lived in Victorian times, their European spending spree and family tragedy. Our children's trails begin here too - collect a sheet from one of our friendly room guides.
Please note that the Lucy family still lives at Charlecote so some rooms are closed to visitors. Buggies and rucksacks don’t mix with fragile artefacts and you will be asked to leave these in the porch (limited space on busy days).
Gadgets and goodies
You'll find a taste of Victorian England in our award-winning kitchen - talk to our costumed guides about what they're cooking today.
Reflect on past lives at Charlecote. Find out more about the cooking techniques and utensils being used. Children can try on mob caps and aprons.
Carriages and cleaning
Cross the courtyard to find out more about the tough life of Charlecote's Victorian servants in the brewhouse, laundry and tackroom. Later this year you'll be able to sample Charlecote ales in here and find out more about how all the original equipment was used.
You'll find our historically important carriage collection here too.
Share your love of Charlecote and join our team.
There are many volunteer-led walks, talks and activities inside and outdoors that don't always happen when volunteers aren't available.
We’ve plenty of opportunities for new volunteers within our forthcoming outbuildings project.
Could you help us to bring history to life?
