Welcome to Ragley; the family home of the 9th Marquess and Marchioness of Hertford and their children.

If a fun family day out is what you're looking for then Ragley Hall, Park & Gardens really does have something for everyone!

Children of all ages will be entertained for hours within our Adventure Wood and 3D maze and with boating on Ragley Lake, an 'Artist in Residence' and a Woodland Walk; it's easy to see why Ragley is one of Warwickshire's most popular family days out.

If gardens are your passion then you just have to explore Ragley Gardens! The 10 hectares of 'Capability' Brown gardens surrounding Ragley Hall are diverse and display a spectacular array of snowdrops in the winter, tulips and daffodils in the spring and a Rose Garden and Prairie Garden throughout the summer months.

Also look out for the Sculpture Collection which further enhance the Ragley landscape. It includes sculptures of the Hertford children and even one of a family dog!

This magnificent Palladian House has been the home of the same family, the Conway Seymours, since it was built in 1680. Designed by the renown architect Robert Hooke and decorated in the Georgian Period by James Gibb, the house while impressive also achieves a comfortable, family home feeling. The Great Hall is 70 feet long, 40 feet wide and 40... More

My husband and I came across Ragley Hall by chance on our way home from a weekend away. It's a lovely old house with beautiful grounds, a children's play area, picnic area and a lake with boats. The price was £9.00 each for entry, which we thought was well worth it. We particularly liked the fact that this house is... More

Took our grandson to the adventure playground and he thought it was wonderful. At 3 years old we had to keep a close eye on him as some of the obstacles are for much older children but there was so much there to keep him amused. My main complaint is that there had been heavy rain the previous night and... More

Came here whilst visiting the area. What a wonderful place to visit. The grounds are lovely and the view from the house terrace is incredible. We went on the house tour which was light hearted and very interesting. We didn’t know that so many TV programmes have been filmed there, especially if you are a David Tennant Dr who fan... More

Quite by accident we found an offer to visit the Hall, Park and Garden for £5 per adult to include a cream tea. The normal price is £9.50 or £7.50 for concessions so the offer was too good to resist. Viewing the hall is by guided tour only and while there are no magnificent collections of silver, ceramics or furniture... More
