Yo Ho Ho

The Pantaloons are back with another rib-tickling performance for the whole family. Pirate activities will be running from 12noon to really get you in the mood. Come on ye' land-lubbers, don't be lily-livered and book your spot today!

Summer strolls

Stretch your legs beyond the walls of Canons Ashby this summer. Grab the new parkland walk from the Coach House for a family-friendly history of the estate, or join the ever popular History Ramble to dig a little deeper. 

Make it special

To celebrate the 150th wedding anniversary of Sir Henry and Lady Frances we want to help couples get engaged in the most romantic way possible, in Northamptonshire's most romantic setting. 

Thursday Therapy

As our most tranquil day of the week, Thursdays are all about feeding the mind and soul. Enjoy the beauty of the garden at your own pace and savour the quiet of the Priory Church. Be inspired by our ancient story on a Priory Church tour at 2pm or join a special 'A Thousand Years' talk. Our unique luncheon club card means Thursday is the perfect day to pick your favourite spot in the Stables Tearoom too.

Guided Walks

 Join our dedicated team of volunteer guides on a stunning six mile circular walk from Canons Ashby every first Thursday of the month.

This is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in the rural heart of Northamptonshire, and take in the breathtaking views of the estate from the county's famous gently rolling hills.
