From a position of high favour to one of fear and oppression post-Reformation, the Throckmortons were leaders in a dangerous age, helping to bring about Catholic emancipation in the 19th century. Explore this story of fascinating personalities through the 'family album' of portraits and Catholic treasures around the house. Coughton is still very much a family home with an intimate feel: the Throckmorton family live here, managing the stunning gardens which they have created. « less

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
