Details

Ragley Hall, the Warwickshire home of the Marquess and Marchioness of Hertford, is set in 27 acres of beautiful formal gardens. The home contains Baroque plasterwork, the stunning 20th century mural 'The Temptation' and a fascinating collection of paintings, china and furniture. In addition to the beautiful house, there are the formal gardens, parkland, lakeside picnic area, children’s adventure playground, maze, gift-shop and terrace tearooms providing a day out for all the family.

Ragley is also home to the Jerwood sculptures, an impressive and diverse collection of 20th & 21st Century pieces which are displayed throughout the grounds, and the Jerwood Stable Studio which offers interpretation and information on the Sculptures.

Directions

Despite its magnificent rural setting close to Stratford-upon-Avon, Ragley Hall is located within easy reach of the motorway network so is accessible from a number of towns and cities including Warwick, Leamington, Henley-In-Arden, Evesham, Worcester and Birmingham and is just 2½ hours from Central London.
There are many hotels, B&B's and cottages close to Ragley to suit all budgets. We are happy to provide you with a selection of our favourites. First and foremost, Ragley is a family home therefore we do not offer accommodation on site.
