Croome is a great place for a group visit and discounts are available for pre-booked groups of 15 or more. Take a look at some of the key information about bringing a group, and how to pre-book.

Bringing your group to Croome

Groups (15 people or more) are required to pre-book visits and will benefit from a welcome and orientation on arrival, with complimentary coach parking adjacent to the visitor welcome centre. There is also the opportunity to tailor your visit with introductory talks and tours

Enhance your visit

To enhance your visit, we can provide:

  • Owner led tours (1.5 hour) of Croome’s privately owned Walled Garden – from £10 per person, Tuesday to Sunday.
  • Access to shuttle service between the visitor centre and house, wheelchairs, electric mobility scooters and stair climbers.

Free familiarisation visits for group leaders

If you're planning a group visit you can request our free Travel Trade Pass and you and a friend or colleague will gain free entry to over 300 of our places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for 12 months. There’s nothing quite like seeing or experiencing somewhere for yourself to help you plan a successful visit. To receive your pass, call 0344 800 2329 or email us at

Who is eligible for free entry?

Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.

Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.

Educational group visits

Croome is the perfect place for a self-led educational visit. If you would like to plan your visit, please contact us at

Schools or education groups can benefit from an Education Group Access Pass, which gives the whole group free admission and parking at most of the places in our care for a year.
