Days out

Where do you want to go?

Latest visiting update

Our gardens, parks, cafés, shops and countryside locations are open. Many houses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are now open to visit. Advance booking for visits helps us keep everyone safe and socially distanced. At quieter times such as weekdays, booking shouldn't be necessary, but to guarantee entry we recommend booking in advance, especially at weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance.

Pack a hamper, round up friends and family and enjoy a leisurely summer's day outside. Whether you prefer golden sand, wildflower meadows or rolling green hills, there's a landscape for every taste. And National Picnic Week is just around the corner, 19-27 June 2021.

Visitors enjoy cups of tea outside Charlecote Orangery tea room

Cafés and tea-rooms to discover 

Now houses are reopening, we delighted to share a few of our favourite cafés and tea-rooms for you to visit and refuel at after your adventures. Enjoy homemade soups and salads, and sweet treats, often made with ingredients from only metres away. This is eating local at its tastiest.
