One of England’s most welcoming stately homes - a great family day out.

The magnificent Ragley Hall, at the heart of the Ragley Estate, dates back to 1680 and is open to the public on select dates throughout the year for guided tours of the impressive state rooms which can also be hired exclusively for your dream wedding ceremony and reception.

Memorable, versatile and located in one of the Midland’s most beautiful counties, Ragley Hall is also the perfect venue for corporate and outdoor events.

If a fun family day out is what you’re looking for then Ragley Park 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', pony rides and a Woodland Walk; it’s easy to see why Ragley is one of Warwickshire’s most popular family days out.

Whilst visiting, 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 and include sculptures of the Hertford children and even one of a family dog!
