Take a stroll

Hanbury walks are suitable for all abilities from long invigorating rambles to short gentle strolls. Keep your eyes peeled for toads splashing in the Mirror Pool, ducklings waddling in the gardens and rabbits bouncing through the fields. You may even still see pheasants and lambs roaming around.

The Black Walk is a longer route taking in the wider estate and venturing off to nearby Hanbury Church. The extra effort will be well worth it to admire the stunning views across the Worcestershire landscape. Download the route for The Black Walk

The Historic Walk offers a slightly more leisurely route, steeped in historic park features, and showcasing rare and unusual trees and an abundance of frolicking wildlife. Download the route for The Historic Walk
