The mansion house was designed by Capability Brown and Robert Adam, and during World War II was home to the Dutch Royal family.

The grounds were Capability Brown's first landscape project, but have since been cut virtually in half by the building of the M5.

The grounds contain many interesting buildings, including a Rotunda, a panorama tower, numerous follies and the recently restored Temple Greenhouse.

Croome Court is nine miles south of Worcester and east of M5, and is signposted from A38 and B4084.
