Description

Charlecote Park

Superb Tudor house and landscaped deer park

The home of the Lucy family for over 700 years, the mellow brickwork and great chimneys of Charlecote seem to sum up the very essence of Tudor England. There are strong associations with both Queen Elizabeth and Shakespeare, who knew the house well — he is alleged to have been caught poaching the estate deer. The rich early Victorian interior contains many important objects from Beckford’s Fonthill Abbey and, outside, the balustraded formal garden opens onto a fine deer park landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown. Visitors can see a video film of life at Charlecote Park in the Victorian period
