Explore Capability Brown’s first garden
The National Trust site, Croome, comprises beautiful parkland with an 18th-century mansion designed by former owner the 6th Earl of Coventry. The Earl was somewhat of a trendsetter and chose up-and-coming Capability Brown to design the garden.
In fact, the garden was Capability Brown’s first complete landscape design, and the house was built in such a way to ensure you could see it in all its glory. Amongst the parkland there are historic buildings including follies to discover, a snaking river and gorgeous views towards the Malvern Hills.
Also at the site, is a privately owned walled garden (that incurs an additional charge), the RAF Defford museum that tells of the airbase during WWII, a play area and a café.
