Famous for hiding Charles II as he fled the country, this House tells the story and maintains the Oak where Charles hid during the day. The oak you see is daughter to the original, and is not in good shape. Its daughter is standing by...More

Rather disappointing. The cafe was not open on time and we arrived early to use it before looking at the house. The place is interesting but overpriced in my view. There was a lot of tasting samples of alcohol and jam to encourage sales. I...More

We set out from Worcestershire to visit this lovely old property, and arrived just after 1pm. We parked up and just as we entered the shop/entrance the heavens opened. Luckily for us we were greeted by a young lady who was extremely knowledgeable of Boscobel...More

As others have said, this place has such historical significance being the place where King Chares II stayed to avoid detection by the parliamentarians in the 17th Century. Whilst the insides (furnishings etc) were not originally from the house itself, what they have obtained really...More

Parking is good, not sure of ticket prices as we are English Heritage members. I think they have a Web site though, or I was should be there.
