Discover the delightful family history of Coughton Court
A vast Tudor House surrounded by beautiful gardens, the history of Coughton Court and the Throckmorton family who have lived there for 600 years is a fascinating one. The house, in Alcester near Redditch, is home to a collection of Catholic treasures whose existence today is testimony to the resilience of a family who were leaders in a dangerous post-Reformation age of anti-catholicism. Peruse the portraits that line the walls of this grand house and tell the tale of struggles within it and then take a stroll out into the magnificent gardens. Watch out for regular family fun days, special events like murder mystery nights and the annual winter festival in which the house is dressed for Christmas from top to toe and you can hear carols being belted out on the baby grand.
