Had a great day recently as there were lots of things to keep the children occupied. Very interesting museum and we treated ourselves to lunch in the cafe. Food was fresh and tasty and the service was excellent.

This appears to be a little known museum but is a hidden gem at the moment. I say that because it is receiving significant Lottery funding which it seems will transform many aspects of the facilities. Hartlebury Castle is not a castle but the historic...More

A wide range of various exhibits to enjoy in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Unfortunately when we visited the access to parts of the adjacent stately home were closed for refurbishment.

Spending a weekend in Worcester we picked up a leaflet about Hartlebury Castle and decided to go on a lovely sunny day. I am sure the visit would be equally great on a wet day too. I found the huge collection of gypsy caravans amazing,...More

I am not sure. Dogs may be okay in the outside areas and possibly in the gypsy caravan display barn. Best to check with the property before travelling. I expect assistance dogs would be allowed throughout.
