Wroxton Abbey was the family estate of Lord North, who was Prime Minister of Great Britain at the time of the American Revolution. Now the house is used for classes, student accommodations and concerts. The former stables contain the dining hall, pub/tea room, and additional classrooms and student accommodation. The estate is adjacent to the village of Wroxton. The town of Banbury is about ten minutes away.
Wroxton Abbey is a perfect home base for our study abroad trip. From Wroxton, we will be able to take day trips to Stratford, Oxford, Birmingham, Hampton Court, London, and Blenheim Palace. In addition, students will be able to experience life in a centuries old village and a classic country estate.
