To Henry James, Wroxton was part of the essence of England. He wrote: “Everything that in the material line can render life noble and charming has been gathered into it with a profusion which makes the whole place a monument of past opportunity.”
Wroxton Abbey’s history covers over 700 years from medieval priory, through Jacobean mansion and Prime Ministerial family home, a warehouse during the Second World War, private apartments and an American University college campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University. Distinguished visitors have included royalty (King Charles I, George IV, William IV and Edward Prince of Wales), writers (Horace Walpole, Celia Fiennes and Henry James), statesman (President Theodore Roosevelt and Prime Minister Harold Wilson) and contemporary political leaders.
