AN INVITATION TO YOUR GROUP TO ENJOY
THE BEST VISIT IN HISTORY
A gentle stroll through three centuries of history.
Guided tours tailored to your special interests.
A diverse series of special events throughout the year.
A perfect setting in the delightful stone village of Sulgrave.
A range of refreshments available, if pre-booked, in our Buttery.
The tours are led by friendly and informative guides who will give the group a small taster of every aspect of the house. Each tour is about an hour and a quarter. Tours can be tailored to meet the needs of groups that share a particular interest. (There may be a little extra charge for this depending on the requirements.)
The Lord or Lady of the Manor will welcome groups to his or her home and bring to life that by-gone age. (Please request separate information)
Tours can be pre-booked for any day of the week, any time of day after 9am. The site closes, at the latest, at 10pm. Please telephone in the first instance to discuss suitable dates. Your chosen day and time will then be held for two weeks awaiting confirmation in writing.
On Event days, although we welcome groups, offering a discount of £1 a head on the entry price, no pre-booked tours are available. Please see our brochure or the website for exact dates and entry prices.
Our minimum group size for a pre-booked tour is 15 people. A group larger than thirty people would be taken round the house in two groups since some of the rooms are quite small. Children accompanying an adult group are half-price.
Once a date has been agreed, please return the completed form within three months with a deposit of £30 - refundable in full on cancellation up to 60 days before the visit. The balance is to be paid on the day of the visit. Cheques payable to "Sulgrave Manor Trust".
On arrival and/or after the tour:
Coffee/Tea and Biscuits or Tea/Coffee and Cake.
Lunch or supper can be ordered and served in our Buttery. Our standard menu is below but do telephone to discuss any special requests.
