Be inspired by Claydon House and its links to Florence Nightingale

Visiting with your school group

We aim to help schools make the most of their visit by offering a memorable day out in an inspiring place. At Claydon, learning is brought to life through a series of hands-on workshops delivered by our education team.

We also encourage teachers to use the house as a space to follow their own programme of events and are happy to talk through options with you.
