TOUR SUBJECTS

GENERAL HISTORY

 

A tour covering the broad history of the Abbey from its beginnings as a monastic house in 1154 to the modern day.  A good tour for those interested in a bit of information on the family and the construction of the house.  Learn about the Leigh family, their famed guests, their connections with the local community, and how the Abbey progressed from a dissolved monastery to a fine country house.

JANE AUSTEN

 

Learn about the connection between the Leighs of Stoneleigh Abbey and Jane Austen, and find out what brought the author to the property in 1806.  See how the house and its portraits may have influenced Austen's writings, and experience her visit through the eyes of her mother, who wrote a letter about her stay at Stoneleigh.
