The Garden - Explore formal arts and craft style gardens laid out in the 1920's by Reginald Blomfield, including fine lawns, attractive herbaceous and mixed borders with informal cottage style planting, a romantic wildflower orchard with historic fruit trees, herb garden, topiary, a tudor vegetable garden and family area all set amongst a beautiful and tranquil rural landscape.

The Restoration. This is possible thanks to some of the most influential people on both sides of the Atlantic who funded the restoration of Sulgrave Manor, the home of George Washington's English ancestors, as part of the centenary commemorations for the Treaty of Ghent which established peace between Britain and the United States of America after the War of 1812.

Once purchased the restoration was delayed by the outbreak of the First World War, and Sulgrave Manor finally opened to the public on 21 June 1921. In the same year, Sulgrave Manor Board (now Sulgrave Manor Trust) was established to preserve Sulgrave Manor for the public benefit and promote its historic and symbolic role in Anglo-American relations.

Today Sulgrave Manor is an independent charity, existing entirely through the generosity of our donors, supporters and visitors.
