Sulgrave Manor Trust

Sulgrave Manor, Manor Road, Sulgrave, Banbury OX17 2SD

Built by the ancestors of George Washington and saved from ruin by donors from both the UK and USA, Sulgrave Manor is the original home of the Special Relationship.

Steeped in history with a legacy that unites nations, be inspired by our stories and consider why working together is still important today.

Sulgrave Manor’s collection is a reflection of its unique relationship between the UK and USA. Our internationally significant George Washington collection is made up of archive materials, works of art and objects relating to Washington’s personal life, much of which is on display in our George Washington: Life and Legacy exhibition.

The Manor showcases antique furniture, textiles and domestic artifacts that tell the story of the house from its Tudor origins, to its 18th century revival, to its purchase in 1914 by the Anglo-American Peace Treaty. Many of the pieces were gifted by donors from both the UK and USA, through which we continue to tell our story of friendship between nations.

Our Garden was designed in the early 1900s by Sir Reginald Blomfield: architect, garden designer and author.

Once you have visited the Manor, Garden and George Washington Exhibition a visit to our small gift shop which offers cards, locally produced goods and crafts, and Sulgrave Manor items is a must.

Visitors can also enjoy our Brewhouse offering tea, coffee and cakes.

Please note only assistance dogs wearing identifying jackets are permitted in the garden.We look forward to welcoming you to Sulgrave Manor & Garden.
