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 thirty miles from both Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon, Sulgrave Manor’s compact size, inviting gardens and the Brewhouse offering tasty cakes, make it an ideal family destination.

Events at Sulgrave Manor

Welcome Aliza

Hi, my name is Aliza and I joined the Sulgrave Manor team at the start of the opening season. I found myself getting involved in many different projects and roles. It has only been a short period of time but the experiences have been excellent. I am loving the opportunity to work in an exciting environment with a small team as an Operations Assistant because I find that every day is different; I am always learning, exploring, and discovering new things.

On our visitor open days, you can find me in the areas I manage; the Brewhouse entrance and seating area. Please do say hello and ask questions, I always look forward to meeting new and returning visitors and building connections with local businesses. I really enjoy getting feedback from the visitors and their favourite part of their time here.

The rest of the week, when Sulgrave Manor is not open to the general public, I am most likely to be found roaming the site dressed as a Tudor delivering our fascinating learning programme to our school groups. Becoming a Learning Facilitator has been a very enjoyable experience so far. It has allowed me to communicate my understanding and research about the house and the period it was built in –this enables me to be more informative with all our visitors too!

Working here is great and I cannot wait to see where this role takes me next!

I hope you liked reading about my story and please do say hello if you see me around the site.
