It’s nearly that time of year again! 4 days of heritage events and open days across the country as part of Heritage Open Days.
We’ll be opening up for free on Saturday 14 September and have already had a number of phone calls and enquirers about it so we’re looking forward to it! It is a great opportunity to dip your toe in the heritage waters to see what it is like! We love being able to show off our beloved Charlecote, especially to those who might not have been here before.
Everything will be open, the house, carriage houses, Victorian kitchens, grounds, restaurant and shops!
If you’ve been to Charlecote many times you might like to visit other places this weekend, especially those which are not always open.
Some of our neighbours are participating in the HODs scheme including:
- Compton Verney who are offering heritage walks in their park today and tomorrow.
- Chedham’s Yard in Wellesbourne. Did you know they won the BBC Restoration programme? They’ve such an interesting story to tell! Want to know what you might see, read Ruth’s Heritage Open Days blog post about it here!
- Harvard House in Stratford Upon Avon. Cared for by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust but usually closed up, Harvard House will welcome visitors on HODs weekend only! Be sure to visit whilst you can! Or perhaps their strong rooms might be of interest?
- Plus lots of our lovely National Trust places are open free on Saturday too!
Where will you visit?
