Garden · Wildlife Area
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.
