We need your help to look after the Manor and our collection for future generations to enjoy. Please support our work, even the smallest donation can make a difference.
Sulgrave Manor is a house like no other. It is the original home of the Special Relationship between the UK and the USA. Bought jointly through public subscription from both the UK and USA in 1914 to preserve the ancestral home of George Washington, the property has been a unique heritage attraction for over 100 years sharing inspiring stories of cooperation and collaboration. Today, we welcome new audiences to this heritage and encourage debate about what the relationship means and how we can tolerate differences and better understand each another for common benefit.
As an independent charity we receive no government or public funding and so we are dependent on the support provided by individuals and grants to fund all the areas of our work, from conservation and maintenance of the house and collection, to new acquisitions, education, research, maintaining our garden and staging events. In addition to our ongoing property costs we are always keen to develop projects and find different ways to engage with new audiences.
Create a new Alpine Garden bringing to life original plans for one area of the garden. The Alpine house has colour throughout the year and the Rock Garden is home to a lovely collection of spring flowering bulbs.
Restore the important crests above the main entrance to the Manor. The crests represent the Tudor Washingtons’ wealth from the Wool trade of the and show their royalist leanings.
Carry out conservation works on our longcase clock dating from 1730’s to hear it chime once again in the Manor.
Replace our small working glasshouse and frameyard to help support propagation for our beds and borders.
Create new activity booklets for family visitors.
