Notice: The construction of the scaffold and the main repair work to the house is delayed. We apologise for the delay.

Expect the unexpected. Incredible innovation, devastating loss, remarkable survival and magnificent restoration. All in one place

Step into what remains of a secret wartime air base, now our Visitor Centre, where thousands of people lived and worked in the 1940s. Walk through a masterpiece in landscape design, which is 'Capability' Brown's very first. Over the last 17 years we have painstakingly restored what was once a lost and overgrown 18th century parkland and we’re continuing this work today.

Find Croome Court, the home of the Earls of Coventry, at the heart of the park, which has been patiently waiting for its revival. Its time has come in 2014 as Croome Redefined starts to pull this glorious yet faded house back from the brink. Explore un-restored spaces and the intricate repair works which will see the house change forever.
