Enjoy a day out at Boscobel House and its famous The Royal Oak as you discover one of the most dramatic escape stories in English History.
Explore the picturesque timber-framed hunting lodge where King Charles II famously took refuge in 1651 after fleeing for his life following Civil War defeat. Peer into the priest hole where he spent the night as well as discovering stories of his visit. A short stroll away is a descendant of the oak tree in which Charles II famously hid for a day as Cromwell’s soldiers searched for him below, and which is celebrated to this day with over 500 pubs called The Royal Oak.
Plus, experience what life would have been like when Boscobel was a thriving Victorian Farm and meet our resident farmyard animals while exploring the historic stables, barns, and dairy.
