Sulgrave Manor is a Tudor and Georgian manor house that was built and lived in by the direct ancestors of George Washington, the first President of the USA. It is a wonderful example of Tudor design brought to life through the remarkable story of an extraordinary family.


We always try to make our event days lots of fun for all ages - please have a look at our Independence Day 2014 video - hopefully it will inspire you to visit for our other events!
