WELCOME TO
SULGRAVE MANOR

A UNIQUE VENUE WITH A FASCINATING HISTORY

Sulgrave Manor is a Tudor and Georgian house built by direct ancestors of George Washington, the first President of the United States. Discover how Civil War, financial ruin, and a shipwreck led to Washington’s great-grandfather seeking a fresh start in the New World.

Explore Sulgrave Manor, an accredited museum, which comes to life with costumed interpreters, interactive games and engaging displays. Set in a picturesque village some thirty miles from both Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon, Sulgrave Manor’s compact size, inviting gardens and café serving hot and cold drinks, light lunches and tasty homemade cakes, make it an ideal family destination.

Winter Restoration

We’re excited to see our winter restoration work underway thanks to our generous supporters at the Friends of Sulgrave Manor. This first phase of our larger restoration project will help to make the Manor wind and water tight. As part of this work we’ll be repairing the damage caused by masonary bees. Masonary bees are solitary bees who build their nests within brick and stonework. The repairs to our stonework will stop water getting into these holes and causing further damage.

Future phases of the project will see restoration work to both the inside and outside of the Manor.
