Different than other popular country houses, Upton House & Gardens thrived in the 1930s. A venue for lavish weekend parties, Lord Bearstead remodeled the house to be a millionaire’s ideal country getaway. Try your hand at a game of pool or play the large grand piano. Ask the staff about the extensive art collection. Stroll through the sprawling, thriving gardens. Enjoy a picnic on the lawn or order a meal from the restaurant--they use ingredients sourced directly from the gardens. Parking is free, but no pets are allowed. Make Upton House & Gardens a centerpiece of your Banbury vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Banbury trip itinerary builder.

  • We were disappointed that so little of the grounds were open to walk around, but we understand that the national trust has been stopped from allowing volunteers to work in the gardens, roll on 2021
  • Walk round the back of the house, doesn't look like much but wait until you walk to the edge of the lawn - epic!
