The manor is a Tudor house with later additions. Entry to the house is with a tour guide. The tour focuses on Tudor times but includes... More

I have wanted to visit for awhile since Sulgrave Manor is very easy to get to from the M40. Parking is close to the entrance. On a day with a special event, you may want to get there in the morning as parking fills up quickly, even the overflow parking. The house is accessible by guided tour only which is... More

The surroundings are pretty and the history of the manor is well explained, with Tudor's customs. Good for children.

We visited to attend a car show and the location is lovely. Unfortunately it rained so we didn't get to appreciate the grounds but from what we did it was worth it. It is a bit smaller than expected. Had nice piece of cake in coffee shop and tour of tudour style manor house that was interesting and entertaining.

We visited here on a late spring Sunday afternoon. The manor consists of a relatively small house, set in tranquil grounds. Finding it is easy - follow the signs in the village. Parking at the manor is free and straightforward. We received a nice welcome and were pleased to find that seniors get an annual pass for £7.40. The house... More

This is the Manor house that George Washington's family lived in. A well established building and with lovely gardens. Whilst the first American President never visited Sulgrave it still has the feeling that he did! You have a guided tour and with Linda W giving a superlative performance it really brought the Manor to life..excellent stuff. Typical NT property and... More

Another of the fine country house properties in the Banbury area and one that Americans will want to visit as it is one of the homes of ancestors of George Washington's family.

We visited Sulgrave Manor. The staff were lovely and it was great to have a guided tour. Much better than a guide in each room. The guides gave out lots of information in a very interesting manner. Thank you all.
