Ragley has been, and remains, the family home of the Marquess and Marchioness of Hertford and manages to retain it’s family charm despite the thousands of people who visit each year.The House itself stands majestically in well-maintained formal gardens within beautiful ‘Capability’ Brown parkland. As well as being architecturally stunning, the Stables house an impressive collection of carriages really bringing to mind the extravagance of times past.The Adventure Playground provides a challenging experience, which includes the 3D maze, climbing frames, trampoline and swings – all in a safe and supervised environment. For the more energetic, we recommend the Woodland Walk, a journey through Ragley’s 400 acres of picturesque parkland and woods.At some point on your visit you are bound to see at least one of the fascinating sculptures scattered around the estate – these are an accession to Ragley from the Montgomery Trust.As well as being a great family day out, Ragley is the ideal venue for many corporate events with several rooms available for seminars, dinners and meetings. Ragley also plays host to weddings, celebrations and charity events. « less

Spending a weekend away nearby we decided to visit the Hall on Sunday. Found from website that it was closed most Saturday's for weddings. (This seems their priority). The car park attendant couldn't tell us if the house was open and few signs that it was. Got the impression that they wanted you to use the grounds not view the... More

First time visiting Ragley and if I ever go again we will definitely take a picnic!! We initially tried to have lunch in the cafe and ice cream shop between the play area and lake but were told by the member of staff that the seating area was closed for a private party although it was currently empty. So we... More

We had a great day here last week. It is in a lovely spot with nice pubs for dinner or lunch around and some sweet villages. The house is attractive and the grounds are too. Well worth a visit

As an anti royalist, anti posh, I was dragged here. However how the other 0.01% live. Loved it, educating, funny, inspiring, spellbound, suprising. The guide was awesome. Am going to give more homes like this a go.

The grounds are stunning and the picnic site is next to one of the best adventure playgrounds and maze in this area . We spent a great day in the sunshine with our family age range 1-61 and there...

Spent the day at Ragley Hall, what a lovely place, visiting the Hall you learn about exciting historical events, there is wide open spaces, and a lake. Great picnic area, no barbecues allowed, and you can walk your dog around the grounds, so long as it is on a lead. Well worth a visit. Ragley Park spans 400 acres of... More

Had a fantastic day orienteering at Ragley Hall today. Excellent grounds to provide a great mix of terrains and difficulties for new and experienced orienteerers. Hope this can become a permanent fixture on the calendar!
