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.

The grounds are extensive and there are many paths to follow, deer roam freely and the house impressive. Its a lovely day for the family and the cafe/restuarant serves decent grub at not unreasonable prices. Pack walking shoes as its mostly gravel and grassy paths.

House, gardens and parkland lovely set beside river Avon. Car park is across the road without a proper pedestrian crossing. Site a walk for disabled, and gravel paths make it difficult joy for wheelchair users. Interior of house interesting but surprised how few rooms to...More

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.
