At its heart lies Croome Court, the brainchild of the 6th Earl of Coventry, an 18th-century trend-setter who collaborated with the best new talent of the day – Robert Adam and Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’ – to create a grand house, on the site of the family’s earlier home, and one of the most innovative designed landscapes in Britain.
Rescued from almost total loss, today the parkland with its serpentine river, commanding views over the Malverns and elegant garden buildings, is a perfect place for walks and adventures, with a surprise around every corner.
During the Second World War Croome was used as a secret wartime airbase. Learn more about this fascinating period, and the activities of the many people who worked here, in the RAF museum located at the visitor centre. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/croome
