Our favourite summer highlight

Lazy summer days are the best at Croome. Pull up a deckchair around the lakeside, relax in the cool of the Church or bathe in the warmth of the Temple Greenhouse.

Summer in beautiful bloom

The shrubberies are looking lovely at this time of year with attractive lupins, roses, acanthus, daylillies and many more. The displays are best leading up to the Temple Greenhouse along the Evergreen Shrubbery.

Soul to Sole

Explore Croome’s past in a new way

Talented new craftspeople and designers have drawn on archive material to tell true stories of loss and survival through pairs of shoes in the basement of Croome Court.

Design your own pair of shoes to go into Soul to Sole in the creative workshop next door.
