Overview

Step into what remains of a secret wartime air base, now our Visitor Centre, where thousands of people lived and worked in the 1940s. Walk through a masterpiece in landscape design, which is 'Capability' Brown's very first, which has been painstakingly restored for over 18 years from what was once a lost and overgrown 18th century parkland. Explore the park and lakeside to find out what conservation project we're working on this year. Find Croome Court, the home of the Earls of Coventry, at the heart of the park which has been patiently waiting for its revival. Its time has come this year as the faded house is repaired and reserviced to be able to open up all four floors in 2016. This year explore two floors of un-restored spaces, see what the builders are working on and climb the scaffold for a cup of tea on Sky Cafe.

I always read the negative reviews before posting my own, and think most people do not get the difficult job the National Trust have in dealing with houses of this nature. The parkland is probably one of the best Capability Brown works anywhere, and in...More

The scenery at Croome is wonderful: mile after mile of glorious countryside. Inside the house the plasterwork is fabulous in places but generally the house is sad. So much of the contents sold off to pay debts there isn't much left. Where walls of tapestries...More
