Visiting » The House Tours
Visitors to the manor today can sit in the Tudor Great Hall surrounded by history - it appears today much as it would have done when it was completed in the mid sixteenth century and Tudor furnishings fill the room.
What was life like for a Tudor family living in this house? How did George Washington's ancestors become wealthy and rise to local prominence? And what forced them to cross the Atlantic in search of a new life? Discover how financial ruin, shipwreck and a pretty lady led to their direct descendant, George Washington, becoming the first President of the United States.
The manor gardens, designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield, and the Buttery cafe will also be open to explore before or after your tour, along with our exhibition on the life of George Washington.
