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!

An amazing setting for a day of family fun and relaxation (yes both are possible at the same time) adventure playground is fantastic and provides the perfect opportunity to create those childhood memories of role playing castles, knights and princesses through to Bear Grylls survival dramas hanging from ropes and crossing bridges! Picnic in the dramatic surroundings and then walk... More

We visited as part of a group yesterday. The team made us very welcome and the tour was interesting-Christina's enthusiasm was clear. My only criticism is that I would have enjoyed more time to appreciate the richness of displays, particularly "the Temptation " mural. Stunning. The high-tea was delicious. Next time I want to explore the grounds and see the... More

This wonderful Stately Home is on our doorstep, so we are fortunate enough to have visited on numerous occasions and for different occasions, also. The Marquis of Hertford has always been a friendly host, and often seen around the Hall as was his Father before him. We have been to Classical Concerts in the wonderful ground where the atmosphere is... More

I hosted a business seminar at Ragley Hall, April 2015. Absolutely everything worked perfectly from arrangements to welcome delegates, through to catering, room arrangements and general support. Sharon and her colleagues were highly efficient and unobtrusive in ensuring that everything worked very smoothly indeed while being very personable in their dealings with the delegates. Feedback from delegates was that they... More

The cost of entry to Ragley Hall is £9 per adult, but if you go on a Wednesday or Thursday the entrance fee is £5 plus you get a ticket for a free cream tea worth £5 so bag a bargain on these days! When you first arrive & walk up the steps to go into the Hall, you are... More

We visited here on Sunday whilst the car show was taking place, all in all it's well with a visit, plenty to keep you occupied like a boating lake, a nice cafe with lovely scones and jam, lovely house & gardens and there's a great 3d treehouse style maze for kids. I would definitely recommend ragley hall for a great... More

talk about value for money, I don't know how they do it, on a Wednesday & Thursday you pay a fiver each and for this you get an hour guided tour of the house which is well worth the admission price alone as our guide Karen Cuff was very informed and made the tour very enjoyable and interesting. the tours...
