Picnics at Croome

Nothing can beat a picnic on a sunny summer's day at Croome with picnic spots to suit everyone in the parkland.

Great views

Church Hill is a lovely place to take in the far reaching views towards the house and the Malvern Hills or a short walk to the Rotunda gives great views to the outer parkland.

Family fun

Picnic benches near the wild play area means you can relax whilst the family have fun making dens in the wild play area or enjoy the nearby playground.

Head to the picnic tables near the childrens play areas at the Visitor Centre or on the south lawn by the house where you’ll find picnic benches and also be in easy reach of the cafés and toilets.

Relaxation

Chill in one of the many deckchairs scattered around the lakeside and enjoy the tranquility. See if you can spy the many dragonflies flitting around the waters edge or the elusive heron that sometimes makes an appearance.
