Visited on a cold November day, so not the best to appreciate the lovely garden. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We took the audio tour and it gave a good insight into life of the man and the artifacts in the cottage. The stairs in the cottage were very steep and my elderly father could not manage... More

We've been here twice but we've always run out of time to see everything, we're due to return soon. What a fascinating man Elgar was.

On a glorious very warm autumn day, I arrived here by bus from Worcester bus station with a mile or so walk from the nearest bus stop. There is a bus that drops you outside but that would have only given me 2 1/2 hours here and I thought I might need longer. To look and listen to everything properly... More

We arrived 10minutes early as we hadn't realized the museum didn't open until 11am. However the very friendly woman at the front desk saw us at the door and let us in so we started with a cup of coffee in the foyer. The museum consists of 2 parts - a small modern buiding with exhibits and the actual Elgar... More

Love going to Croome. Always have a good walk round the park and tea and cake in the 1940's airmens' mess style cafe afterwards.

Very interesting, volunteers were so friendly and helpful. Parking was easy and free. Can even get a coffee or cup of tea. We're very helpful to us as one of our members was in a wheelchair.

It's not that we were especially interested in the composer Elgar, but we never miss an opportunity to visit the birthplace of a famous artist. It gives such an insight in the person and his/her work. Elgars Birhtplace Museum did all that. We loved it. And his music.

Obviously this is primarily a place of interest to those who like Elgar's music and are interested in his life. Although Elgar lived in many places during his lifetime, this cottage, where he was born, is the focus for exhibits from throughout his lifetime. The cottage is beautifully preserved, with an English cottage garden, which has a bench with a... More
