Discover and Explore at Hagley Park and Visitor Centre

Known as one of the Midlands’ best kept secrets, Hagley Park and Visitor Centre is set in 350 acres of tranquil Worcestershire countryside and is owned by the 12th Viscount Cobham.

The Park has something for everyone to enjoy, and after years of restoration, we are now able to offer a family friendly nature trail and visitor centre, in the heart of the Hagley Hall Estate. Whether you are interested in history, passionate about Georgian Parks, or just want a memorable walk with family, you are sure to create great memories at Hagley Park.

We have developed and designed a series of peaceful woodland paths in which visitors can meander their way around at leisure, spotting interesting flora and wildlife, as well as discovering centuries of remarkable history with follies to view. As well as our historical Garde 1 listed Park, our café sells barista style coffees and cream teas as well as delicious homemade cakes, cookies, light breakfasts and lunches. The Park and café are dog friendly with puppucinos, doggy ice cream and treats readily available. Our newly opened, dog park is a recent addition and an enjoyable way to exercise your dog in a secure environment. The Park is beautiful throughout the seasons, and we are looking forward to sharing it with all our visitors.
