Overview

Charlecote Park has been home to the Lucy family since the 12th century. Their stories are told throughout the house by their portraits, the objects they collected from around the world and the design influence they had on the house and parkland. See how Mary Elizabeth Lucy remodeled the house in Victorian times. The gardens include a formal parterre, woodland walk and the wider parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown), which offer walks with picturesque views across the River Avon. A herd of fallow deer has been in the park since Tudor times.

This is a very interesting property set in wonderful grounds. The gardens are well kept and very attractive. There was also lots of things for kids to do. We spent several hours there but could very easily have spent longer.

You will have to pay the entrance fee to get into the grounds, this is less if you do not want to visit the house.

As far as I am aware they only allow Assistance Dogs onto the site, but you may be able to check via the park website.
