"Harlaxton must be seen to be believed and even when one has seen it, it is not always easy to believe." - Mark Girouard, The Victorian Country House
“Harlaxton Manor itself may be our best teacher. Each of us would like to be ‘the best teacher in the place,’ but I keep thinking the best teacher IS the place. Our students are themselves living in living history, and they can’t avoid it.”
– a Harlaxton faculty member
Harlaxton Manor is many things. A gloriously beautiful 150-room stately home set in the beautiful English countryside. One of England’s “100 Best” great houses, according to Simon Jenkins of the London Times. A proud heritage for the entire world—Harlaxton is a Grade I Listed Historic Building. A masterpiece created by its architect, Anthony Salvin, who also bid to build the Houses of Parliament. . . .
And now, for half a century, nearly one-third of its life, Harlaxton Manor has been a vibrant home to Harlaxton College, where the energetic daily lives of students and faculty bring the Manor into the present, even casting its shadow of hope into the far future as students leave to become responsible global citizens.
A History is a Heritage. A Past is a Prologue. Harlaxton Manor Inspires.
