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.

We visit at least once a year. It's a lovely drive there, and it always looks impressive from the drive. We love walking in the park amongst the deer, who don't seem fazed by the proximity of humans. The cafe serves good food and cream...More

This NT House and Park are well worth a visit. Lovely deer herd in the park. The house is very interesting and the volunteers full of knowledge they are pleased to share. The restaurant is also very good and reasonably priced freshly prepared food.

Charlecote was as good as we remembered - lots of interest in the house; pleasant walks around the park; helpful, friendly and informative staff / volunteers. And delicious cake!

A really great place to visit with fantastic walks around the house. The deer are tame and come close to you. The outhouses are interesting and give a real idea of life in the 1800s. The coaches are in great condition and the kitchen reminded...More

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.
