Bring your club, association or group of friends to spend a glorious day at Upton House & Gardens.

Banking for Victory

This is the final chance to see Upton transformed into ‘Banking for Victory’ – A Country House at War where a London merchant bank, owned by the family, was relocated to Upton during the Second World War.
 
Upton became the bank's HQ and an emergency home to key staff working there during hostilities.
 
We are featuring stories about the staff evacuated from London, the family’s military service during the war, how the artwork was evacuated to safe storage in Wales, digging for victory in the garden and the wider estate. 

Digging for Victory

The gardens are beautiful. From spring bulb displays to summer borders, some of which are planted with vegetables for the Dig for Victory campaign. In September there is a display of asters in blue and purple, some of which are part of the National Plant Colelction.
