Back to nature at Charlecote
Spring means that all the wildlife in our parkland is getting busy. Take a closer look and see what you can discover with our Birds and Mini-Beasts trail either side of the busy Easter weekend.
Come along over the Easter holidays with family and friends to find out more about the birds and mini-beasts that have made their home at Charlecote. It's a great way to spend some time together away from screens, and you're always welcome to bring a picnic too.
We're running our new trail away from the long Easter weekend and our Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts when it will be less busy - 13-17 April and 24-28 April. Come and see what's out and about.
Pick up your trail between 9am and 3.30pm, £2 per trail (normal admission applies to non-National Trust members). There's a small mini-beasts-themed prize at the end of the trail.
Look out for the spring lambs and enjoy colourful flowers in the gardens and wildflowers in the parkland.
Birds are nesting in the trees around the parkland in the trees and in our nestboxes. See if you can see butterflies dancing around the gardens, and there are always bees and ladybirds to spot too. Just pick up a leaf or look into the long grass and see what's there.
If you're not sure what you've spotted, there are plenty of pictures and information in the Spinney shed behind the stables.
Your visit to Charlecote helps us look after this precious habitat. Every penny you spend here stays at Charlecote for our work - thank you.
