Wroxton College is the overseas campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University. The College is housed in a magnificent 17th Century Jacobean mansion, the ancestral home of Lord North (Prime Minister under King George III), and nestling in 50 acres of its own landscaped grounds. When not attending sessions, participants will have an opportunity to explore the mansion and the grounds. The mansion has its own library, chapel, and spacious reading room. There is also a gymnasium in the basement. A guided tour of the house will be available on Saturday evening. Wi-fi is available throughout the College.
The village of Wroxton is also of interest, with thatched cottages and a parish church housing the remains of various members of the North family, several of them significant figures in the history of England.
