Welcome To

Built in 1862 by two aristocrats from Ashcroft House, England , Ashcroft Manor is located just north of Spences’ Bridge on Highway One. The manor was an important roadhouse along the Wagon Road with a distinctly British flavor, complete with elm trees and a racetrack. Today it is a beautifully restored historic attraction.

The town of Ashcroft is tucked away beside the beautiful Thompson River; just a few minutes drive east of Highway One. Surrounded by rolling ranch country, tumbleweed, sagebrush and sand, this is a town straight from the legends of the wild west.
Ashcroft was born almost over night, when it became the site for the most northerly point of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Ashcroft Museum and Archives portrays the regions’ pioneer history, as well as the history of the Nlaka’pamux, Sce’exmx and Okanagan peoples who first lived in the area.

Other attractions are the town’s June Rodeo and its drag races. The locally run Visitor Information Center can be found in the Harvey Bailey Mall on Railway Avenue.
