National Trust Canons Ashby Wednesday 27 May 2020

A tranquil Tudor manor house set in rare terraced gardens, with the ‘antient’ Dryden family at its heart. Built by the Drydens using the remains of a medieval priory, the house and gardens have survived largely unaltered since 1710 and are presented as they were during the time of Sir Henry Dryden, a Victorian antiquary, passionate about the past. The warm, welcoming house features grand rooms, stunning tapestries and Jacobean plasterwork, contrasting with the domestic detail of the servants’ quarters. Stroll in the historic parkland and catch glimpses of early medieval landscapes, while a wander through the priory church reveals the story of the canons of Canons Ashby. Visit the Coach House shop and plant centre. Many plants have been propagated and grown at Canons Ashby.
