A #GBWalk in the park

Across the National Trust, we’ve been celebrating the Great British Walk. We’re so lucky to have so many fantastic places to get out to and explore on foot. Many people think of the Peak District or the Lakes as the ideal place to go walking but there are so many wonderful places right here on our door step.

There is a wonderful walk you can do right here at Charlecote. It takes you through our park and past many wonders both past and present. You may even encounter our herd of fallow deer!

You can download the walk from our website.

You’ll discover the royal connections Charlecote has, find out more about the Victorian ‘wendy house’ nestled in the garden and perhaps even have a little time for a game of croquet after your river side wander.

We regularly have park walks, shorter walks, led by a volunteer who will tell you more about our magnificent parkland. These walks depend on volunteer availability but often we can run them 3 or 4 times a week. Check the board outside the Gatehouse when you arrive at the park, or give us a call to ask when our next walk will take place. There is always something going on in the park and a whole host of wildlife to be spotted!

Don’t forget we have our Boundary Walk on 3 November! This is completely free (normal admission applies) and is a guided walk following the boundary of the park. We’ll have staff and volunteers on hand to help and answer questions. The walk starts at 1pm from the Gatehouse.

Our first Boundary Walk in 2009 had, what seemed like, thousands of people joining us for a walk in the park!
