Upton House, Banbury

(800+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
Different than other popular country houses, Upton House 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. Add Upton House to your Banbury travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Banbury vacation trip planner.
