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.

I visited Charlecote Park the morning of 5/26/2018 and enjoyed walking through the woodland garden, lawns, and grounds in light rain before heading into the house when it opened for visitors. The grounds are vast and mostly flat with a few slopes and steps and...More

As a National Trust member, I go here regularly to walk my dog now catered for with specific dog routes. Although this does not include the house, it is a great idea by the Trust that welcomes you to explore most of the grounds with...More

The house looks Tudor, but was heavily restored in Victorian times. Being disabled, I found the gravel tracks through the garden tiring. The main car park is about 200m from the house and toilets. We enjoyed going round the house, and most rooms are on...More

One of the best National Trust properties we visited. The house, gardens, deer Park, etc. were all excellent. Lots of interesting extras too like the kitchens, brewery and carriages.

Stunning views over the Avon peppered with deer. House and grounds fascinating and resplendent. Loved Sally our guide, a veritable source of historic nuggets. A feminist. A woman after my own heart. Strongly recommend a look at the table. Some pretty extraordinary chairs too.

As its National Trust you have to pay an entrance fee to visit. It is less than visiting the house as well.
