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.

Walking up the drive to the house we were lucky to encounter a group of male deer on the verges. They were unfazed at the human presence and carried on grazing. They were so close, you could inspect their newly grown antlers and admire their...More

The house and grounds are lovely with plenty to see and do. The staff were very friendly and willing to engage. The rooms were beautifully laid out and it is worth visiting the kitchen where we sampled and saw Welsh cakes being freshly made. They...More

Well worth a visit with something for all ages. The tour of the house was very interesting, what a magnificent table and the kitchen delights in old tales. I can recommend the venison sausages which can be bought from the Larder shop. A lovely walk...More

A pleasant house with interesting history and good eateries. The parkland walks suggested are not the most interesting but the resident deer are great and you can get quite close.

This is a great place to visit, the house and grounds do not disappoint. Even though it started raining on our walk round the Deer Park it didn't spoil the day. It was lovely to get so close to the deer and their youngsters. Would...More

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.

Charlecote Park does not offer a pre-bookable timed ticket, they sometimes if really busy issue a timed ticket, but it is not pre-bookable. I hope this answers your question.
