Superb Tudor house and landscape deer park

Charlecote has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. Their stories are told throughout the house with their portraits as well as through the objects they collected from around the world. See the design influence they had on the house and parkland. Step into the house today and you will see how Mary Elizabeth Lucy spared no expense furnishing it in Victorian times.

The gardens include a formal parterre, colourful herbaceous planting, woodland walk and the wider parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown), which offers miles of walks and views across the River Avon. A herd of fallow deer has been in the park since Tudor times.

Victorian Christmas

Come and see the house decorated for Christmas at weekends this December

We’re planning a traditional Victorian Christmas at Charlecote this year.

Enjoy music, beautiful hand-made decorations and the spirit of Christmas away from the bustle of the high street

Visit Father Christmas in the house and see what sweets and savouries we're cooking in the Victorian kitchen.

We've got lots of Christmas gifts and goodies in the shop to inspire you.

In December the house is open at weekends only, but everything else remains open every day.

Inspired by Charlecote

Inspired by Charlecote - new productions at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre

We have been working with the Royal Shakespeare Company for their productions of Shakespeare's great romantic comedies Love's Labour's Lost and Love's Labour's Won (Much Ado About Nothing).
     The theatre in Stratford is being turned into our very own Charlecote Park and we've really felt that we have stepped back in time for a little while. Watch the trailer to see more.
      Book tickets with the RSC.
