A lovely place to visit, especially for children. The grounds are lovely to walk round, picnic tables located at many spots. Lots of wildlife to see together with a new bird hide.Various trails and items for kids to find and count. Inside the palace , the chapel is very pretty and some great interactive displays are located throughout. The museum in the opposite wing is also very interesting. It looks like a lot of work is going into developing the site further with the addition of new features. The guides and staff were all so friendly and knowledgeable and the cafe is well worth a visit, really nice food and coffee. Well worth a visit.

We've just had the best day out here. There is so much to see and so many parts are interactive which the children loved, the dress up areas, 50's play kitchen and secret rooms were their favourite parts! Every member of staff we met was so friendly and helpful. We also completed the children's crafts which were lovely and again such lovely friendly helpful staff. It has a lovely cafe and lots of beautiful areas outside to sit in too. They have lifts to the higher floors so accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs. We will 100% be back soon.

What an interesting place. Really well set out with interactive displays. Attached museum is also very good with several floors with different themes including a school room and clothes through the ages. Didn't have time for the transport section or the walks so will revisit. Great cafe, which has cooked breakfasts as well as toasties and cream teas! And it is accessible even if you don't want to go into the castle or museum. Fabulous!

Lovely little gem near Kidderminster. Went for a day out not expecting much but spent a good 3 hours exploring. Good sized cafe with decent selection of food including a kids menu. Lovely little shop. Really friendly and helpful staff. Great for the kids as a lot of the castle and museum is interactive without too much restriction on what can be handled. Lovely walk around the perimeter. Lovely day out.

Pleasant walk around the perimeter and we'll laid out paths. The inside was fascinating with plenty to see and commentary provided. This was our first visit but won't be the last. The gypsy caravans were especially interesting as were the Morgan cars but not sure if they're permanent fixtures
