Make it special

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

Dawn Chorus Walk

Spring is a time of reawakening, and we can think of no better way to wake up than to the sound of the dawn chorus. Join an RSPB guide for the rare treat  of experiencing Canons Ashby at first light, before settling in the Tearoom for a light breakfast.

Jazz Picnic

Sit back, relax and enjoy a delicious picnic from the Stables Tearoom, all to the sounds of smooth live jazz on the south front lawns - we challenge you to find a lovelier or more relaxing way to enjoy Canons Ashby's terraced gardens.
