Come visit the Drydens' ancestral home turned National Trust heritage site for a day out complete with a picnic and toasts with the couple! The house is in the countryside about 2 hours from London. It is easiest to access by car, but there is a train + taxi option as well.
For those traveling via train + taxi , we will set up a WhatsApp group to organise transport, which will broadly include: 1) Trains between London Euston to Milton Keynes Central 10:43 depart/ 15:47 return) (30 min, £15, super Off-Peak return ticket), 2) Shared taxis between Milton Keynes Central and Canons Ashby (40 min). Milton Keynes is a big center so scheduling a taxi for both directions will not be an issue, athough will need to be booked in advance (we can suggest companies) - there is no Uber in the Daventry countryside!
