Croome is one of the top National Trust places to enjoy a picnic

Buy a picnic from the RAF visitor centre restaurant to take into the park. Your picnic bag will come with a blanket and a range of choices for your food and drink. We recommend a shaded spot on a picnic bench down the Wild Walk or find a deckchair around the lakeside for your spot of lunch.

Bertha the tea car has landed

With Defford Airfield Heritage Group's help, we now have an original 1940s tea car serving drinks and snacks on busy days and every Sunday so you can beat the queues. We've called her Bertha, after the nickname written on her side.
