'Grafton Regis - 1,000 Years in 100 Minutes'

The amazing history of Grafton Regis comes to life as you walk through the village...



Our 2023 historical walks will take place on Saturday May 13th, Saturday June 17th and Saturday September 23rd.

View the Flyer for these events here.

Please contact us if you would like to come and have any questions.

We start at 2.30pm in the colourfully decorated Grafton Regis Village Hall and meet some of the famous people from medieval times who have links with the village, including the White Queen, Elizabeth Woodville, and Richard III, all in authentic costume.  We then take a leisurely walk through the village to the beautiful Church of St Mary the Virgin, meeting Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey, Elizabeth I and other historical figures from the Tudor period en route.  More events from village history, including the sacking of Grafton House during the Civil War, the creation of the Dukedom of Grafton, and the discovery of the Grafton Portrait of Shakespeare, are recounted in the Church.  We also meet characters from more recent times back at the Village Hall.

Finally, tea and cakes are served in the Village Hall.


The cost is £9.50 for adults, £1.00 for under 16s and free for under 5s.

All profits will be divided between the funds for the maintenance of the Village Hall and of the Church.

Booking is essential.

Village Walk

Why not take a walk through the narrow lanes of the village to see the historical buildings & stunning views....

From its vantage point on top of a hill, Grafton enjoys stunning views across the Tove Valley south towards Milton Keynes & north towards Northampton. Walk from the Village Hall up The Lane towards the Church & see The Manor, site of Henry VIII’s lost palace (thought to rival Hampton Court in size at the time). Stop at the Church to see its  many treasures, including the display of tiles from the marriage of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville, then continue down Bozenham Mill Lane towards the Grand Union canal with stunning views across the farmland towards Hanslope. Walk back up past the Church & along Church Lane, noting the beautiful thatched cottages along the way, past the White Hart Pub before returning to the Village Hall. See the Gallery to get a taste of the views in store...
