Coughton Court

Home to the Throckmorton family for 600 years, this fine Tudor house stands testament to a family's courage in maintaining their beliefs.

From a position of high favour to one of fear and oppression post-Reformation, the Throckmortons were leaders in a dangerous age, helping to bring about Catholic emancipation in the 19th century. Explore this fascinating story through the 'family album' of portraits and Catholic treasures around the house. Coughton is still very much a family home with an intimate feel: the Throckmorton family live here, managing the stunning gardens which they have created.
